 Guttmann’s survey embraces the philosophy of Judaism from the Bible to the present day (at the time of the work). It remains a lasting monument of a significant phase in the history of Jewish philosophy and its attempt to elucidate not only Judaism, but also itself.

Philosophy/ Judaica JULIUS GUTTMANN Philosophies of Judaism Translated by David W. Silverman Introduction by R. J. Zwi Werblowsky PHILOSOPHIES OF JUDAISM is a complete and authoritative history of Jewish philosophy, from biblical times through its period of great vitality in the Middle Ages to the turn of this century. It is Professor Guttmann’s underlying thesis that there cannot be a single philosophy of Judaism, because Judaism has never given official sanction or preference to one philosophic tradition over others. Every doctrine of Judaism, whether biblical, rational, empirical, or mystic, yields a more or less accurate image of Judaism to the extent that it comes to grips with the basic realities of Jewish religious experience: the existence of God, the primacy of Torah, and the history of the Jewish people. “PHLOSOPHIES OF JUDAISM is at once a history of Jewish philosophy and a profound philosophical treatment of Judaism. The book represents the philosophy of religion in the genuine sense —a critical, reflective treatment of Judaism.” —John E. Smith, Chairman, Department of Philosophy, Yale University “The scope and thoroughness of this book make this an indispensable volume for anyone interested in Judaism or anyone interested in philosophy.” —Commonweal Julius Guttmann (1880-1950), one of the foremost scholars of our time, was professor of Jewish Philosophy at Hebrew University, Jerusalem.
