Product Description

Review

With an engaging and probing approach to Jewish concerns, from education to prayer, Claire Elise Katz gives us a fresh new look at some of the most influential Jewish philosophers of modern times. Written in an engaging and easy style, this is a wonderful way to introduce students and all learners to the rich and fascinating world of modern Jewish thought. -Susannah Heschel, Eli Black Professor of Jewish Studies, Dartmouth College

Despite its title, the book is much more than an undergraduate introductory textbook in modern Jewish philosophy: though at this it performs its task well. Claire Elise Katz is herself an important post-modernist feminist Jewish thinker whose writings successfully integrate, as they do in this volume, her academic knowledge of modern philosophy with her personal passion for Judaism. -Norbert Samuelson, Harold and Jean Grossmann Professor of Jewish Philosophy, Arizona State University

Claire Elise Katz places Jewish philosophy more squarely in the history of western philosophy and thus brings it into conversation with Descartes, Locke, Hobbes, Kant, Hegel, Husserl, Sartre, and de Beauvoir. She imaginatively draws Jewish philosophy out of its own self-enclosure, thereby transforming it into something more cosmopolitan, more rigorous, more curious, and more conceptually generative than perhaps has been previously imagined." --Zachary Braiterman, Professor of Religion, Syracuse University

"Jewish philosophy is viewed by Claire Elise Katz as the voice of the other: as an internal point of difference and limit without which western philosophy cannot be truly critical. Reshaping the conceptual contours of the western philosophical tradition, as Katz does here, means that something happens to Jewish philosophy in the process. The author places the latter more squarely in the history of western philosophy and thus brings it into conversation with Descartes, Locke, Hobbes, Kant, Hegel, Husserl, Sartre, and de Beauvoir. She imaginatively draws Jewish philosophy out of its own self-enclosure, thereby transforming it into something more cosmopolitan, more rigorous, more curious, and more conceptually generative than perhaps has been previously imagined." - --[Zachary Braiterman, Professor of Religion, Syracuse University]
