This book explores three schools of fascinating, talented, and
gifted scholars who absorbed into their thought the Jewish and
secular cultures of their respective homelands. They include
halakhists such as Rabbi Ettlinger and Rabbi Eliezer Berkowitz;
Jewish philosophers from Isaac Bernays to Yeshayau Leibowitz; and
biblical commentators such as Samuel David Luzzatto and Rabbi
Umberto Cassuto. Running like a thread through the analysis of the
different scholars, is the attempt to conciliate Jewish orthodoxy
with a wish to connect with Western culture and philosophy and to
accept the conclusions of scientific research. Among these attempts
is Luzzatto's famous `dual truth' approach. This book is the sequel
to the Ephraim Chamiel's previous book The Middle Way, which
focused on the challenges faced by the members of the "Middle
Trend" in nineteenth-century Jewish thought.
