AIMS AND SCOPE
The aim of the journal is to provide an international forum for Jewish
thought, philosophy and intellectual history. The historical range will
not be limited to any given period, nor will there be any religious or
political orientation determining the acceptance or rejection of
articles. The emphasis will be on high scholarly standards with an
interest in issues of interpretation and the contemporary world. It is
to be expected that articles will cover philosophy, biblical studies,
mysticism, literary criticism, political theory, sociology and
anthropology.
