Professor Eliezer Schweid is one of the greatest Jewish thinkers of the time. For many, he is recognized as a leading researcher in Jewish thought, but his original thought has yet to be presented in a comprehensive and exhaustive manner. Schweid's philosophy deals with the main challenges of the State of Israel, such as cultural pluralism, materialism, religion and moral commitment in the postmodern era. In these issues, Schweid suggests a fresh and original thought that breaks dichotomies and shows commitment to past values and tradition, with constant openness and sensitivity to the modern reality in which we live. This book offers for the first time a systematic analysis of the totality of Schweid's ideas, and is the first step in presenting his thought at the center of Jewish and Israeli discourse.
