The Discipline of Philosophy and the Invention of Modern Jewish Thought

Willi Goetschel

Fordham University Press

This chapter discusses the need to consider Jewish philosophy as a discipline and not merely as a category. It highlights the interrelationship between the emergence of modern philosophy and the invention of Jewish thought as its critical supplement and argues that the dialogue between Jewish and German philosophers is one of the most creative force fields in the development of modern philosophy. This chapter also discusses the contribution of Hermann Levin Goldschmidt in highlighting the enduring importance of the legacy of modern Jewry's sustained reasoning “out of the sources of Judaism” and in making the contributions of Jewish philosophers of the past newly legible as a creative dialogue crucially important to the project of critical philosophy.

Keywords:   Jewish philosophy, modern philosophy, Hermann Levin Goldschmidt, modern Jewry, Judaism, critical philosophy
