About this Item

Cloth, 8vo, xvii, [1], 626 + xiv, [1], 639 p.; 22.5 cm. Gathers together 27 and 28 essays by Wolfson in English as well as 2 in Hebrew. "For almost forty years Harry Wolfson has devoted himself unreservedly, indeed heroically, to a bold and imaginative projectentitled 'Structure and Growth of Philosophic Systems from Plato to Spinoza.' The fastidiously reasoned, intricately textured thesis underlying this grand project and unifying its many offshoots has been succinctly and lucidly described by Wolfson himself in the preface to Religious Philosophy: 'If we are to follow the conventional method of dividing philosophy into ancient, medieval, and modern, then medieval philosophy is to be defined as that system of thought which flourished between pagan Greek philosophy, which know not of Scripture, and that body of philosophic writings which ever since the seventeenth century has tried to free itself from the influence of Scripture. Medieval philosophy so defined was founded by Philo. He is the interpreter ofGreek philosophy in terms of certain fundamental teachings of his Hebrew Scripture, whereby he revolutionized philosophy and remade it into what became the common philosophy of the three religions with cognate Scriptures, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This triple scriptural religious philosophy, which was built up by Philo, reigned supreme as a homogeneous, if not a thoroughly unified, system of thought until the seventeenth century, when it was pulled down by Spinoza.'" (from vol.1, p. v-vi) -- As the twelfth volume of his Structure, Wolfson intended 'a definitive revision of Spinoza, with cross-references to all the previous books of the series' (Schwarz, Wolfson of Harvard, p. 224).
