Jews and words by Amos Oz( )

29 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 1,556 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors roam the gamut of Jewish history to explain the integral relationship of Jews and words. Father and daughter tell the tales behind Judaism's most enduring names, adages, disputes, texts, and quips. These words, they argue, compose the chain connecting Abraham with the Jews of every subsequent generation. From the unnamed, possibly female author of the Song of Songs through obscure Talmudists to contemporary writers, they suggest that Jewish continuity, even Jewish uniqueness, depends not on central places, monuments, heroic personalities, or rituals but rather on written words and an ongoing debate between the generations

Karayanni, David Passig, Avi Sagi, Gideon Sapir, Anita Shapira, Daniel Statman, Gadi Taub, Shira Wolosky, Alexander Yakobson, Yaffa Zilbershats.--
An essay on the history of civil society by Adam Ferguson( Book )

29 editions published between 1995 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 473 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Adam Ferguson's Essay on the History of Civil Society (first published in 1767) is a classic of the Scottish - and European - Enlightenment. Drawing on such diverse sources as classical authors and contemporary travel literature, Ferguson offers a complex model of historical advance which challenges both Hume's and Smith's embrace of modernity and the primitivism of Rousseau. Ferguson combines a subtle analysis of the emergence of modern commercial society with a critique of its abandonment of civic and communal virtues. Central to Ferguson's theory of citizenship are the themes of conflict, play, political participation and military valour. The Essay is a bold and novel attempt to reclaim the tradition of active, virtuous citizenship and apply it to the modern state."--Publisher description
Translating the Enlightenment : Scottish civic discourse in eighteenth-century Germany by Fania Oz-Salzberger( Book )

21 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and held by 407 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a study of the transmission of political ideas across languages and cultures. It focuses on a notably fruitful encounter between two eighteenth-century political cultures: the reception of Scottish civic ideas, voiced most powerfully in the works of the Edinburgh historian-philosopher Adam Ferguson, by German thinkers in the era of Enlightenment, and early Romanticism. Fania Oz-Salzberger's detailed and challenging analysis places Ferguson in the context of the Scottish Enlightenment, and highlights the affinities and differences between his milieu and that of his German readers. She traces the German reception of Ferguson's thought, pointing at conceptual stumbling-blocks and linguistic tensions. Dr Oz-Salzberger describes a complex, often unintended shift of Scottish civic language into a German vocabulary of spiritual perfection and inner life. This process, she argues, was far from futile: the reading and misreading of Ferguson and other Scottish authors enriched German intellectual life in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries

Political Hebraism : Judaic sources in early modern political thought( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Between the 16th and 18th centuries, European political philosophy felt intimately at home with the Hebrew Bible, enjoyed some familiarity with later Jewish texts and exegeses, and accommodated a small number of Jews within its political discourse. The period was characterized by a search for Hebraica Veritas, a view of De Republica Hebraeorum as the idealized polity, and biblical and Jewish ideas permeating the political imagination through art, literature, and legal codes. This volume is comprised of papers from the first ever international conference on political Hebraism held in Jerusalem in August 2004 under the auspices of the Shalem Center. The topic of political Hebraism is broached here from a number of approaches, including historical, literary, philosophical, theological, critical, and sociopolitical
Das jüdische Erbe Europas : Krise der Kultur im Spannungsfeld von Tradition, Geschichte und Identität by Eveline Goodman-Thau( Book )

4 editions published in 2005 in German and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Juden und Worte by Amos Oz( Book )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2015 in German and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Juden und Worte bilden von jeher eine enge Verbindung. Amos Oz und seine Tochter Fania Oz-Salzberger, die als Historikerin lehrt, erkunden jüdische Wortwelten, Wörter, ihre alten wie neuen Bedeutungen, Auslegungen und Wandlungen, die 22 Buchstaben des hebräischen Alphabets. Kontinuität im Judentum war immer ans mündlich geäusserte und geschriebene Wort geknüpft, an ein ausuferndes Geflecht von Interpretationen, Debatten, Streitigkeiten. In der Synagoge wie in der Schule, vor allem aber zu Hause umspannte es zwei oder drei ins Gespräch vertiefte Generationen. Was Juden untereinander verbindet, sind Texte. Es ist mit Händen zu greifen, in welchem Sinne Abraham und Sara, Rabban Gamiel, Glückel von Hameln und zeitgenössische jüdische Autoren demselben Stammbaum angehören. Vater und Tochter zeigen anhand verschiedener Themen wie Kontinuität, Frauen, Zeitlosigkeit, Individualität quer durch die Zeiten, von der namenlosen, möglicherweise weiblichen Verfasserin des Hohenliedes bis zu den Talmudisten, Gelehrten und Künstlern die Verbindung von Juden und Wörtern. Sie zeigen, dass jüdische Tradition, auch jüdische Einzigartigkeit nicht von zentralen Orten, Erinnerungsstätten, heroischen Figuren oder Ritualen abhängt, sondern vielmehr von geschriebenen Worten, deren Auslegungen und Debatten zwischen den Generationen. Gelehrt, behände und humorvoll bietet Juden und Worte einen einzigartigen Streifzug durch die jüdische Geschichte und Kultur und lädt jeden Leser, jede Leserin zum Gespräch ein, zu Fragen, Einwänden, Entdeckungen in einem Buch.

Los judíos y las palabras by Amos Oz( )

6 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in Spanish and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

¿Por qué las palabras son tan importantes para los judíos? El novelista Amos Oz y la historiadora Fania Oz-Salzberger engranan hábilmente personalidades de todos los tiempos, desde el autor anónimo y probablemente femenino del Cantar de los Cantares hasta los oscuros talmudistas o los escritores contemporáneos, para explicar la relación esencial que existe entre los judíos y las palabras. Mezclando la narración y la labor de investigación, la conversación y la argumentación, padre e hija cuentan las historias que se ocultan tras los nombres, adagios, disputas, textos y chistes más perdurables del judaísmo. Ambos argumentan que estas palabras componen la cadena que conecta a Abraham con los judíos de todas las generaciones posteriores. Con una prosa llena de conocimiento, de lírica y de sentido del humor, Los judíos y las palabras propone una visita extraordinaria a las palabras que conforman el corazón de la cultura judía y tiende una mano al lector para que se una a la conversación
