The Legacy of German Jewry

This chapter discusses German Jewry's legacy to philosophy. The philosophic legacy of German Jewry consists of its comprehensive reacquisition and reworking of this philosophic tradition. German Jews were completely at home with the most advanced intellectual methods, testing and reaffirming Judaism's message and casting its philosophic tradition anew because their perspective was rooted in a different linguistic medium. This chapter highlights the philosophic and Jewish legacies of the pioneering philosophical works of Philo, Moses Maimonides, and Baruch Spinoza.

Keywords:   German Jewry, philosophy, legacy, Judaism, Philo, Moses Maimonides, Baruch Spinoza
