Negative Theology as Jewish Modernity, Hardback Book

Negative Theology as Jewish Modernity Hardback

Edited by Michael Fagenblat

Part of the New Jewish Philosophy and Thought series


Negative theology is the attempt to describe God by speaking in terms of what God is not.

Historical affinities between Jewish modernity and negative theology indicate new directions for thematizing the modern Jewish experience.

Questions such as, What are the limits of Jewish modernity in terms of negativity?

Has this creative tradition exhausted itself? and How might Jewish thought go forward? anchor these original essays. Taken together they explore the roots and legacies of negative theology in Jewish thought, examine the viability and limits of theorizing the modern Jewish experience as negative theology, and offer a fresh perspective from which to approach Jewish intellectual history.
