Description - Women and Gender in Jewish Philosophy by Hava Tirosh-Samuelson
A groundbreaking collection of essays that mutually engage Jewish and feminist philosophy Women and Gender in Jewish Philosophy is the first systematic attempt to interpret the Jewish philosophical tradition in light of feminist philosophy and to engage feminist philosophy from the perspective of Jewish philosophy. Written by Jewish women who are trained in philosophy, the 13 original essays presented here demonstrate that no analysis of Jewish philosophy (historical or constructive) can be adequate without attention to gender categories. The essays cover the entire Jewish philosophic tradition from Philo, through Maimonides, to Levinas, and they rethink the sub-disciplines of Jewish philosophy, including metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, political theory, and theology.
