Description
Summary:Breaking with received opinion, this book seeks to challenge the exclusionary, essentialist, and even totalitarian nature that is inherent to the practice of what is problematically referred to as 'Jewish philosophy'. Hughes begins with the premise that Jewish philosophy, as it is presently conceived, is impossible. He then begins the process of offering a sophisticated and constructive rethinking of the discipline that avoids the traditional extremes of universalism and particularism.
