Faith and Freedom

Moses Mendelssohn's Theological-Political Thought

Michah Gottlieb

  • Reveals how Mendelssohn reconciles Judaism with modern values of freedom and equality and provides an important counter-argument to critics of religion who contend that religion is essentially intolerant, hierarchical, and coercive
  • Argues that current debates about the value/viability of liberal democracy and humanistic religious faith can be illuminated through a reconsideration of Mendelssohn's thought
