Jewish Thought, Utopia and Revolution

(2014) In Value inquiry book series 274.
Abstract
In respons to the grim realities of the present world, Jewish thought has not tended to retreat into eschatological fantasy, but rather to project utopian visions precisely onto the present moment, envisioning redemptions that are concrete, immanent, and necessarily political in nature. The purpose of this book is to contribute to the deeper understanding of the relationship between Jewish thought, utopia, and revolution, by taking a fresh look at its historical and religious roots.
