Medieval Jewish Philosophy and Authentic Jewish Piety: Yitzhak Baer and Julius Guttmann on Hasdai Crescas’s Philosophy
The article examines personalistic elements in Hasdai Crescas’ conception of God. It argues that embedded in Crescas’ innovative approach to divine attributes and divine love is a critique of Maimonides’ impersonalistic theology and an alternative theology which attributes to God a relation with human beings and personalistic features. It also examines how Crescas’ theological orientation regarding divine personalism is integrated into the philosophies of modern Jewish thinkers particularly Samuel David Luzzatto and Julius Guttmann.
