Chapter Summary

In the last few years several publications on Manuel Joel (1826-1890) have appeared which might help revive interest in his life and work among historians of the development of nineteenth-century Jewish thought. This chapter explores Joel's scholarship on Maimonides and Kant, arguing that there is a close relationship between the two. The chapter describes Joel's writings on medieval philosophy, beginning with his discourse on Maimonides. For Joel, Maimonides was a representative of the twelfth-century Jewish zeitgeist. Joel's primary interest was to identify in what way Maimonides was a typical representative of his zeitgeist. The chapter shows two short articles by Joel which are important for understanding Joel's attitude toward Kant's philosophy. The first was a short paper which was published in the Monatsschrift für Geschichte und Wissenschaft des Judentums under the title "Something on the Influence of Jewish Philosophy on Christian Scholasticism.

Keywords: Christian scholasticism; Jewish zeitgeist; Kant; Maimonides; Manuel Joel
