Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with Jewish thought that confronted the totality of problems of religion and its place in the life of society, state and culture in modern times, on a philosophical level, as a historical process. It also deals with reflection on religion from various other viewpoints, including those that criticize and oppose religion, as well as others that appreciate it but see it as only a provisional stage toward the truth whose full understanding is beyond it. The distinction between these two approaches to religion is a feature of the general history of philosophy in the West, starting with the first encounters between philosophy and monotheistic religion - Judaism and Christianity - in the Hellenistic period and later in the Middle Ages.

Keywords: Christianity; culture; Hellenistic period; Judaism; middle ages; monotheistic religion; philosophy; society
