This book provides an introduction and deeper analysis of the situation of Jewish philosophy in the last century and beyond. It charts Jewish philosophy's engagement with modernity and post-modernity along two overlapping axes; underlying issues and significant twentieth century Jewish philosophers. Throughout its history, modern Jewish philosophy has confronted such issues as: the nature of Judaism, Jewish identity, meaning, continuity, the value of remaining a Jew, authority and change in Jewish law, and the particular challenges of history (including the Holocaust), feminist Judaism, and religious pluralism. Featured are those philosophers of encounter: Franz Rosenzweig, Martin Buber, and Emmanuel Levinas, as well as Joseph Soloveitchik, Gershom Scholem, .Arthur Cohen, Eliezer Schweid, Emil Fackenheim, and Irving Greenberg.
