A philosophical dictionary, Ozar ha-munnahim ha-Pilosofiyyim (4 vols. , 1928–33) , which contains the terminology of medieval religious philosophers. Compiled by Jacob Klatzkin (1882–1948) , "author, philosopher, and Zionist. " - EJ 2008. "Jacob Klatzkin's Otzar ha-munahim ha-filosofiyyim. Thesaurus philosophicus linguae hebraicae (Berlin, 1928-1933) remains unsurpassed to this day. Its stated objective was to enlarge modern Hebrew vocabulary in the field of speculation and reflection by restoring to use the many terms and expressions coined by medieval Hebrew translators. The Thesaurus includes 3042 entries, some 1200 pages in four volumes, plus one volume of texts. Klatzkin read through a very large number of philosophical works in Hebrew, mainly in print but also in manuscript, and collected the philosophical terms occurring in them. His philosophical lexicon is conceived as a Thesaurus in the strict sense of the word. A typical entry for a term is constructed as follows: (i) the term (vocalized) ; (ii) a very brief definition (in Hebrew) ; (iii) equivalent terms in other languages (especially German, occasionally also English, French, Latin, or Greek) ; and, most importantly, (iv) significant text extracts, in which the term occurs; (v) eventually, a list of related terms to be looked up elsewhere in the Thesaurus. Where a given term has more than one meaning, its different meanings are carefully distinguished. The very judiciously and cleverly chosen text extracts make Klatzkin's Thesaurus into an exceptionally valuable research tool. For over 80 years Klatzkin's work has been the indispensable companion of any student of Jewish intellectual life. "- Philosophic and Scientific Hebrew Terminology – PESHAT.
