Synopsis

In From Spinoza to Levinas, Ze'ev Levy discusses the pivotal ideas of the most influential Jewish thinkers in modern times including Spinoza, Mendelssohn, and Levinas. Levy accounts for the political foundation of the philosophies of Spinoza and Mendelssohn and the role of hermeneutics in the writings of Spinoza and Maimonides. He traces the history of modern philosophical and biblical hermeneutics and considers issues pertaining to death and dying in light of traditional Jewish and contemporary concepts of the body and soul. Finally, Levy focuses on the thought of Emmanuel Levinas, arguably one of the most important Jewish philosophers in the second half of the twentieth century. By articulating and responding to contemporary ethical and political challenges and dilemmas, Levy succeeds in contributing to the rich legacy of Jewish thought.

The Author: Ze'ev Levy is Professor Emeritus of Philosophy at the University of Haifa and was also a guest professor at the University of Heidelberg, the Hochschule fur judische Studien, and the University of Kassel in Germany as well as at the University of Binghamton and at Queens College in the United States. He is the author of numerous books including Between Yafeth and Shem: On the Relationship Between Jewish and General Philosophy (Lang, 1987) and Baruch or Benedict: On Some Jewish Aspects in Spinoza's Philosophy (Lang, 1989). His main fields of interest are structuralism, ethics, hermeneutics, Spinoza, and Levinas. The Editor: Yudit Kornberg Greenberg is the Cornell Endowed Chair of Religion and Director of the Jewish Studies Program at Rollins College in Winter Park, Florida. Dr. Greenberg is the author of Better Than Wine: Love, Poetry and Prayer in the Thought of Franz Rosenzweig (1996) and the editor of the Encyclopedia of Love in World Religions (2007). She has written articles on topics in modern and contemporary Jewish thought and is presently completing a manuscript on love in Jewish thought.
