Moses Mendelssohn (1729-1786) was the premier Jewish thinker of his day and one of the best-known figures of the German Enlightenment, earning the sobriquet "the Socrates of Berlin". Mendelssohn has been treated as a symbol of the modern Jewish predicament, symbolising the conflict between Jewish tradition and secular culture.
