As a subfield of Jewish Studies modern Jewish philosophy is haunted by challenges arising from the culturally specific circumstances and original goals pursued by the Jewish philosophers of the past that are no longer immediately accessible. This essay looks at systematic and historical aspects of Jewish philosophy with the aim of determining ways of retrieving the plausibility of a taxonomically problematic field operating at the intersections of philosophy, history, religion, and Judaism.
