Ebook Description

The concept and discourse regarding the "Jewish Luftmensch" around 1900 functions not only as a metaphor for what the 19th century bequeathed to the 20th in form of the "Jewish Question", but also was also a critical comment on modernity as a whole, in which Jews were perceived and described as rootless. Berg's book analyses the cultural upspring, development and change of this metaphor giving examples from business, theology, philosophy, science and literature. QR Code Online
