The Brandeis Library of Modern Jewish Thought

Editors: Eugene R. Sheppard and Samuel Moyn

This library aims to redefine the canon of modern Jewish thought by publishing primary source readings from individual Jewish thinkers or groups of thinkers in reliable English translations. Designed for courses in modern Jewish philosophy, thought, and intellectual history, each volume features a general introduction and annotations to each source with the instructor and student in mind.
