Michel Foucault observed that 'the birth of philology attracted far less notice in the Western mind than did the birth of biology or political economy.' In this penetrating exploration of the origin of the discipline, Maurice Olender shows that philology left an indelible mark on Western visions of history and contributed directly to some of the most horrifying ideologies of the twentieth century.
