JUDAISM AND ITS SOCIAL METAPHORS: ISRAEL IN THE HISTORY OF JEWISH THOUGHT
Original Cloth. 8vo. XIV, 258 pages. 24 cm. First edition. "The current crisis in Palestine is only the most recent manifestation of Israel's historical significance to the Jewish people. Jacob Neusner examines the crucial role of the definition of Israel in the history of Judaic thought. He argues that Judaic sages have constructed various metaphoric images of Israel-as family, as chosen people, as a nation-in order to express changing theological concerns as the religion evolved. The history of the definition of Israel is revealed as the reflection of the history of Judaism itself. This is a bold and original interpretation of the way in which Jews, as well as other peoples, define themselves. " (Publishers Description) . Subjects: Judaism - History - Talmudic period, 10-425. Rabbinical literature - History and criticism. Jewish sociology. Jews - Identity. Clean and fresh in good jacket. Very good condition. (NEUSNER-3-50). N° de réf. du libraire 32902
