Editorial Reviews

Review

“This is a fine study and relatively accessible for an academic work . . . The book is mostly descriptive rather than evaluative. Dr. Mittleman does seem particularly concerned to show the value of Jewish ethics to those operating from mainstream secular philosophical schools of thought. Recommended.”  (Association of Jewish Libraries Reviews, 1 September 2012)

“For those with some background, Mittleman provides a thoughtful tour through a number of seminal moments in Jewish ethical reflection.  Summing Up: Recommended.  Some advanced undergraduates, graduate students, and researchers/faculty.   (Choice, 1 July  2012)

"[It] admirably recounts the Jewish tradition of ethical inquiry from its biblical beginnings until today. Mittleman is thoroughly at home in the primary sources and secondary literature. He is also an expert on contemporary moral philosophy, which enables him to contextualize Jewish thought within a wider framework of ethical theory ... He covers a vast amount of information in 200 pages, and the reader who perseveres will learn much about the broad sweep of Jewish ethical thinking." (Jewish Ideas Daily)

Review

"This work is a thorough treatment of the history of Jewish Ethics. It is learned, beautifully written, and truly philosophical insofar as it deals with the thought of the various thinkers it covers."
David Novak, University of Toronto

"A fine piece of work, eminently useful and valuable. Mittleman wears lightly his formidable range, his scholarship, and his mastery of the original texts in the Hebrew and German languages. The result is a learning experience that turns what might have been daunting into a delightful and exciting adventure."
Lenn E. Goodman, Vanderbilt University
