Through a lifetime of passionate scholarship, Gershom Scholem (1897-1982) uncovered the "domains of tradition hidden under the debris of centuries" and made the history of Jewish mysticism and messianism comprehensible and relevant to current Jewish thought. In this paperback edition of his definitive book on Scholem's work, David Biale has shortened and rearranged his study for the benefit of the general reader and the student. A new introduction and new passages in the main text highlight the pluralistic character of Jewish theology as seen by Scholem, the place of the Kabbalah in debates over Zionism versus assimilation, and the interpretation of Kafka as a Jewish writer.

The legendary correspondence between the critic Walter Benjamin and the historian Gershom Scholem bears indispensable witness to the inner lives of two remarkable and enigmatic personalities. Benjamin, acknowledged today as on of the leading literary and social critics of his day, was known during his lifetime by only a small circle of friends and intellectual confreres. Scholem recognized the genius of his friend and mentor during their student days in Berlin, and the two began to correspond after Scholemâe(tm)s emigration to Palestine. Their impassioned exchange draws the reader into the very heart of their complex relationship during the anguished years from 1932 until Benjaminâe(tm)s death in 1940.

A new biography of the seminal twentieth-century historian and thinker who pioneered the study of Jewish mysticism and profoundly influenced the Zionist movement Gershom Scholem (1897–1982) was perhaps the foremost Jewish intellectual of the twentieth century. Pioneering the study of Jewish mysticism as a legitimate academic discipline, he overturned the rationalist bias of his predecessors and revealed an extraordinary world of myth and messianism. In his youth, he rebelled against the assimilationist culture of his parents and embraced Zionism as the vehicle for the renewal of Judaism in a secular age. He moved to Palestine in 1923 and participated in the creation of the Hebrew University, where he was a towering figure for nearly seventy years. David Biale traces Scholem’s tumultuous life of political activism and cultural criticism, including his falling-out with Hannah Arendt over the Eichmann trial. Mining a rich trove of diaries, letters, and other writings, Biale shows that his subject’s inner life illuminates his most important writings. Scholem emerges as a passionately engaged man of his times—a period that encompassed two world wars, the rise of Nazism, and the Holocaust.

In this finely crafted critical biography, Amir Engel provides a corrective to much of the vast literature on the enigmatic, but highly influential, twentieth century figure Gershom Scholem. Engel contends that Scholem s major achievement lies not in his scholarly discoveries but in his creation. Rather than finding the truth of the Kabbalah, he molded the vast literature of Jewish mystical lore into narratives, indeed stories, which entail new truths. Positioning Scholem s narratives in the context in which they were originally told, Engel discusses two interrelated stories: the story of Scholem s life and the story he told in his historiography. Gershom Scholem: An Intellectual Biography describes Scholem s formative years starting with his early adolescence before the First World War and ending when he reached recognition as an established Scholar in the 1950 s. It discusses Scholem s early activism in the Zionist youth movements in Berlin, his activism against World War One, his insistent search for father figures, and his ultimate failures. It continues with a discussion of the crisis Scholem underwent after immigrating to Palestine, his activism and the events that led him to rethink his politics. Finally, it describes Scholem s retreat from politics: his realization that his vision of Zionism was undone by powers much greater than his own. Simultaneously, this book offers a contextualized study of Scholem s major historiographical works. For Scholem s study of the mystical lore cannot be separated from his political activism, his demands to renew a dying nation, and the events he experienced in his life. Among other aspects of his historiography, the book discusses Scholem s interpretation of the Kabbalistic myth of exile, the Messianic misadventure of Sabbatai Zevi, and the aftermath of the Sabbatian debacle. Beyond offering a novel perspective on Scholem, this book opens a unique window onto some of the fundamental questions and problems of the first half of the 20th century in central Europe and in Israel/ Palestine."
