The Discipline of Philosophy and the Invention of Modern Jewish Thought

Willi Goetschel

A Fordham University Press Publication

Exploring the subject of Jewish philosophy as a controversial construction site of the project of modernity, this book examines the implications of the different and often conflicting notions that drive the debate on the question of what Jewish philosophy is or could be.

The idea of Jewish Philosophy begs the question of philosophy as such. But "Jewish Philosophy" does not just reflect what "philosophy" lacks. Rather, it challenges the project of philosophy itself.
