Walter Benjamin (1892-1940), Gershom Scholem (1897-1982), and Emmanuel Levinas (b. 1906) each have had enormous influence on contemporary ideas about language, history, and interpretation in a variety of fields from literary criticism to religious studies, philosophy, and social theory. Handelman studies their ideas and, in a broad framework, their relation as Jews to modernism and postmodernism in general. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
