This book offers a concise yet panoramic overview of a crucial contemporary debate. Allan Arkush, author of Moses Mendelssohn and the Enlightenment
Borowitz invited a discussion of postmodernism and Judaism in his book, but the battle over the term yields to what is one of the clearest expositions of the context in contemporary disciplines, and more importantly the reasons why Judaism needs a postmodern turn now. This is not merely taxonomy, but is rather a deep reflection and, better still, conversation about the way Judaism faces the crisis of modernity. Robert Gibbs, author of Correlations in Rosenzweig and Levinas"
