SHMUEL FEINER and DAVID SORKIN. EVEN though the Haskalah movement ended a century ago it remains exceptionally difficult to define it precisely. Unlike other agents of change in modern Jewish history, the Haskalah had no ideological and institutional coherence, comprehensive organization, constitution, generally agreed programme, principles, or allegiance to a specific defined ideology.

New Perspectives on the Haskalah. Academic journal article Shofar. David Sorkin, a Professor of Jewish Studies and Senior Fellow in the University of Wisconsin, Madison, views the first sixty years of the eighteenth century as an "early Haskalah" rather than an anticipation of it. The intellectual figures of that time strove for a curriculum that could encompass the culture of the time and at the same time pursue the revival of the study of Hebrew, of biblical exegesis, and of philosophy written in Hebrew.

This volume, written by a range of scholars in history and literature, offers a new understanding of one of the central cultural and ideological movements among Jews in modern times. Disengaging the Haskalah from the questions of modernization or emancipation that have hitherto dominated the scholarship, the contributors have put the Haskalah under a microscope in order to restore detail and texture to the individuals, ideas, and activities that were its makers in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. In particular, they replace simple dichotomies with nuanced distinctions, presenting the relationship between 'tradition' and Haskalah as a spectrum of closely linked cultural options rather than a fateful choice between old and new or good and evil. The essays address major and minor figures. They ask whether there was such an entity as an 'early Haskalah', or a Haskalah movement in England; look at key issues such as the relationship of the Haskalah to Orthodoxy and Hasidism; and also treat such neglected subjects as the position of women. New Perspectives on the Haskalah will interest all students of modern Jewish history, literature, and culture.
