Summary "Philosophers and Scholars offers a map of possible research conceptions and methods for the study of Jewish philosophy. Dr. Jonathan Cohen brings together the views of three of the greatest scholar-thinkers in the area of Jewish philosophy of the twentieth century: Harry Austryn Wolfson (1887-1974), Julius Guttmann (1880-1950) and Leo Strauss (1899-1973). Each thinker's construction of Jewish philosophy is presented through individual definitions of Judaism and philosophy, understandings of its historical development and analyses of the canons used in interpretations of Jewish philosophical texts. Dr. Cohen approaches the history of Jewish philosophy from a personal and fervently held Jewish philosophical perspective. This rich and fascinating text imparts new perspectives and theses on the research orientations of Wolfson, Guttmann and Strauss. Philosophers and Scholars will captivate those interested in religious studies and philosophy."--BOOK JACKET
