Presentation, traduction et notes de David LEMLER Un Pieux et un Sage debattent: est-il legitime de recourir a la philosophie, lorsqu'il s'agit de comprendre la verite livree par la Torah ? L'usage de la raison n'est-il pas un affront a l'autorite de la tradition ? De ce debat immemorial, inspire des vifs affrontements qui, au XIIIe, ont suivi la diffusion du maitre ouvrage de la philosophie juive medievale, le Guide des egares de Maimonide, ressort une reflexion fondamentale sur la nature de la croyance et l'exigence de sa fondation en raison. L'epitre de la controverse, plus qu'une version litteraire du Discours decisif d'Averroes, constitue une introduction militante a la philosophie juive et plus generalement un manifeste pour la philosophie. Le Pieux: - Tes propos sont surprenants: tu voudrais contredire ce que chacun sait, masquer ce que les yeux voient et dedire la voix que toutes les oreilles ont entendue. Ne savons-nous pas que les philosophes sont ceux que l'on nomme - sectaires -, qu'ils sont heretiques vis-a-vis du Createur de toutes choses et que tous leurs propos contredisent notre Torah ? -"

Ce quatrième et dernier volume de l'Encyclopédie philosophique universelle constitue le pendant du premier, L'Univers philosophique, comme le volume II, Les Notions philosophiques est le symétrique du volume III, Les Oeuvres philosophiques, l'ensemble révélant la structure en miroir du projet encyclopédique. Les textes philosophiques, en effet, pris dans l'univers des problèmes qu'ils soulèvent, analysés à travers la pluralité des notions qu'ils définissent, décrits dans la multiplicité des oeuvres qui les déploient, dégagent ici l'unité irréductible du discours qui est le propre de toute philosophie. Le Discours philosophique envisage d'abord l'inscription de la philosophie dans les grandes langues de civilisation et les cultures orales, puis sa diffusion à travers les chemins de la traduction et les voies du comparatisme. Une troisième partie met en lumière les formes de la philosophie qui articulent les genres et les commentaires aux textes et aux contextes. Une dernière partie parcourt les champs de la philosophie, au confluent des sciences et des techniques, des savoirs et des pratiques. En un tome de près de 2 800 pages, composé de 158 chapitres illustrés par plus de 2 000 textes des plus grands penseurs, Le Discours philosophique est la synthèse des actes de pensée de tous les temps, la cartographie de la philosophie mondiale et la bibliothèque des oeuvres les plus rares. Il clôt ainsi, en laissant le dernier mot aux textes, le cercle toujours croissant de l'encyclopédie.

Leo Strauss is widely recognized as one of the foremost interpreters of Maimonides. His studies of the medieval Jewish philosopher led to his rediscovery of esotericism and deepened his sense that the tension between reason and revelation was central to modern political thought. His writings throughout the twentieth century were chiefly responsible for restoring Maimonides as a philosophical thinker of the first rank. Yet, to appreciate the extent of Strauss’s contribution to the scholarship on Maimonides, one has traditionally had to seek out essays he published separately spanning almost fifty years. With Leo Strauss on Maimonides, Kenneth Hart Green presents for the first time a comprehensive, annotated collection of Strauss’s writings on Maimonides, comprising sixteen essays, three of which appear in English for the first time. Green has also provided careful translations of materials that had originally been quoted in Hebrew, Arabic, Latin, German, and French; written an informative introduction highlighting the original contributions found in each essay; and brought references to out-of-print editions fully up to date. The result will become the standard edition of Strauss’s writings on Maimonides.

Breaking with strictly historical or textual perspectives, this book explores Jewish philosophy as philosophy. Often regarded as too technical for Judaic studies and too religious for philosophy departments, Jewish philosophy has had an ambiguous position in the academy. These provocative essays propose new models for the study of Jewish philosophy that embrace wider intellectual arenas—including linguistics, poetics, aesthetics, and visual culture—as a path toward understanding the particular philosophic concerns of Judaism. As they reread classic Jewish texts, the essays articulate a new set of questions and demonstrate the vitality and originality of Jewish philosophy.

The Syro Aramaic Reading of the Koran

Throughout its history the Koran has presented problems of interpretation. Some scholars estimate that at least a quarter of the text is obscure in meaning, not only for Western translators but even native Arabic speakers, who struggle with the archaic vocabulary that is no longer used in modern Arabic. In this in-depth study of the language of the Koran, scholar Christoph Luxenberg dispels much of the mystery surrounding numerous hitherto unclear passages. The key, as Luxenberg shows exhaustively, is to understand that Aramaic--the language of most Middle Eastern Jews and Christians of the pre-Islamic era--had a pervasive influence on the development of the Arabic text of the Koran. For a thousand years preceding the advent of Islam, Aramaic (or Syriac as it was sometimes called) was the lingua franca of many parts of the Near East. It was the native language of the first Christian evangelists and the main liturgical language of the early Christian churches from Syria to Iran. Based on this historical context and a profound knowledge of Semitic languages, Luxenberg clarifies many thorny textual puzzles. Perhaps his most interesting argument is that the passage often translated as referring to the "virgins" that are believed to greet the departed faithful in paradise was long ago misunderstood. In fact, knowledge of ancient Christian hymns in Aramaic suggests that the word in question refers to "grapes" that the departed will enjoy in a paradisiacal garden. Luxenberg discusses many other similar fascinating instances where Aramaic vocabulary and concepts influenced the text of the Koran This highly erudite work makes a significant contribution to the study of the Koran and the history of Islamic origins.

The Cambridge World History of Medical Ethics is the first comprehensive scholarly account of the global history of medical ethics. Offering original interpretations of the field by leading bioethicists and historians of medicine, it will serve as the essential point of departure for future scholarship in the field. The book reconceptualises the history of medical ethics through the creation of new categories, including the life cycle; discourses of religion, philosophy, and bioethics; and the relationship between medical ethics and the state, which includes a historical reexamination of the ethics of apartheid, colonialism, communism, health policy, imperialism, militarism, Nazi medicine, Nazi 'medical ethics', and research ethics. Also included are the first global chronology of persons and texts; the first concise biographies of major figures in medical ethics; and the first comprehensive bibliography of the history of medical ethics. An extensive index guides readers to topics, texts, and proper names.

From Priestly Torah to Pentateuch

Christophe Nihan investigates the composition history of Leviticus, considered as a separate 'book' in the Torah/Pentateuch. In order to account for the distinct nature of the text, the author combines redaction criticism with comparative observations, cross-cultural studies in rituals, and inner-biblical exegesis. His analysis focuses on the sources used by the authors of Leviticus and the way in which they are re-interpreted in what is primarily a literary composition; on the book s relationship to the so-called 'priestly' literature in the Pentateuch; and, finally, on the place of Leviticus in the composition of the Torah as a whole. In particular, it is argued that Leviticus 1-16 (except for chapter 10) was initially composed as the conclusion to the priestly narrative in Genesis and Exodus. It reinterprets earlier ritual texts serving as check-lists for priests, transforming them into a revelation made to Moses on Mt Sinai for the whole community and thereby achieving the sacerdotal ideal of Israel as the 'priestly nation' of the world. Thus, reinterpretation of earlier sources in Lev 1-16 goes hand in hand with a redefinition of the community's identity that betrays the specific concerns of the priestly scribes in Jerusalem under Persian rule, probably during the reign of Darius I. The introduction of Lev 17-26 (27), for its part, betrays an entirely distinct historical and literary context. Through the systematic reception of Deuteronomy on one hand and the 'Book of the Covenant' (Ex 21-23) on the other, an attempt is made to close the revelation on Mt Sinai with a legislation that bridges the gap between P and other biblical codes at the time of the Torah's composition."
