Abstract

Hungary, they were seen by many Hungarians, Gluck makes clear, as expressing a decisively “Jewish difference.” Her book, which I do not hesitate to call major, casts light on the relationship of two developments about which we have known little until now. Gluck’s excellent writing opens a door to sophisticated and well - informed studies of the cultural life of Budapest Jewry before it was obliterated during the Holocaust. — Zsuzsanna Ozsváth doi 10.1215/0961754X-4362703 Carlos Fraenkel, Teaching Plato in Palestine: Philosophy in a Divided World (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2016), 240 pp. Part One of this award- winning book takes us on an exploratory voyage through some of the most basic of philosophical questions as these are pondered in the least likely “corners” of the world. In Part Two, the “tour guide” finally lays out before us the intellectual map of this fascinating excursion. The purpose of this unique experience (which we signed on to, he as much as tells us, by reading the book) is to make us see the practical value of testing and introspecting our beliefs and ponderings through a congenial but sharp conversation with ourselves and others.
