The Jewess Pallas Athena:
This Too a Theory of Modernity
Barbara Hahn

Book Description
Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This important book is a highly intelligent and subtle analysis of the role of female intellectuals, largely Jewish, in shaping German cultural sensibilities in recent centuries. Hahn's moral concern--passion--is palpable on every page of her erudite volume. Her work is also a testimony of an earnest attempt, utterly free of sentimentalism, to claim a legacy that unfettered nationalism and bigotry sought to eradicate. Intellectually and spiritually compelling, and marked by graceful and eminently lucid prose, it should meet with enthusiastic interest not only among scholars but also among interested general readers."--Paul Mendes-Flohr, University of Chicago, and Director, The Franz Rosenzweig Research Center for German-Jewish Literature and Cultural History, The Hebrew University of Jerusalem
