Kurzbeschreibung Religious scholar Alan Mittleman explores Jewish moral concepts through Jewish historical sources, beginning with the Bible. He covers various types of rabbinic, medieval philosophical and popular pietistic literature, and modern Jewish thought, as well as traditional Jewish work on ethics in the modern period and a consideration of contemporary Jewish ethics. From Moses and Mendelssohn to modern figures such as Emmanuel Levinas, A Short History of Jewish Ethics offers fascinating insights into the evolution of the historical voices and writings that remain woven into the fabric of contemporary Jewish consciousness.
