Jewish Philosophy as a Guide to Life by Hilary Putnam
Book DescriptionDistinguished philosopher Hilary Putnam, who is also a practicing Jew, questions the thought of three major Jewish philosophers of the 20th century-Franz Rosenzweig, Martin Buber, and Emmanuel Levinas-to help him reconcile the philosophical and religious sides of his life. An additional presence in the book is Ludwig Wittgenstein, who, although not a practicing Jew, thought about religion in ways that Putnam juxtaposes to the views of Rosenzweig, Buber, and Levinas. Putnam explains the leading ideas of each of these great thinkers, bringing out what, in his opinion, constitutes the decisive intellectual and spiritual contributions of each of them. Although the religion discussed is Judaism, the depth and originality of these philosophers, as incisively interpreted by Putnam, make their thought nothing less than a guide to life.

Books By Author Hilary Putnam
Pragmatism as a Way of Life, Hardback (May 2017)
Hilary Putnam argues that all facts are dependent on cognitive values. Ruth Anna Putnam turns the problem around, illuminating the factual basis of moral principles. Together, they offer a pragmatic vision that in Hilary's words serves as a manifesto for what the two of us would like philosophy to look like in the twenty-first century and beyond."
Naturalism, Realism, and Normativity, Hardback (April 2016)
Hilary Putnam's writings have shaped fields from epistemology to ethics, metaphysics to the philosophy of physics, the philosophy of mathematics to the philosophy of mind. This volume reflects his latest thinking on how to articulate a theory of naturalism which acknowledges that normative phenomena form an ineluctable part of human experience.
End of Value-Free Economics, Paperback (May 2014)
This book brings together key players in the current debate on positive and normative science and philosophy and value judgements in economics.
Philosophy in an Age of Science, Hardback (April 2012)» View all books by Hilary Putnam
