RARE collection of studies on Philo of Alexandria by Leopold Jakob Jehuda Treitel (1845-1931), a renowned German-Jewish classical scholar whose main academic and scholarly interest revolved around Philo`s philosophy. He was the last rabbi of the Jewish community in the town of Laupheim, then Württemberg, Southern Germany. Treitel wrote his PhD thesis on Philo in 1870 in Latin (`De Philonis Judaei Sermone Dissertatio), and published several books and articles on Philo and his philosophy, culminating in his magnus opus `Die gesamte Theologie und Philosophie Philos von Alexandria`, published in 1923. Treitel claimed that Philo employed `rabbinic methods and patterns of interpretation, although Greek methodology did make a deep impact upon the content`. Influenced by Frankel and Graetz, Treitel attempted to demonstrate the importance of Philo`s philosophy to Jewish thinking, particularly because of Philo`s emphasis on the social order of Jewish life and the universal interpretation of the Jewish scriptures, and also because he `did not imply an abrogation of the law, but rather to the contrary its wider dissemination and thus affirmation`. 235x155mm. VI+130 pages. Black/grey marbled rebound board Hardcover with cloth spine and corners. Cover yellowing. Rear cover/spine rear hinge upper edge peeled. Spine edges bumped. Sticker on spine hinges upper part. Age-stains on inner cover, whitepages and title page. Some pages bottom corner/edge slightly creased. Color pencil/pen marks near text on some pages. Pages yellowing, some pages and text-block age-stained. [SUMMARY]: This extremely rare book on the philosophy of Philo from Alexandria, and its relation to Judaism, written by the foremost exponent of Philo`s affinity with Jewish thought, is in good condition.
