   Abstract = {Jacob and Esau is a profound new account of two millennia of
             Jewish European history that, for the first time, integrates
             the cosmopolitan narrative of the Jewish diaspora with that
             of traditional Jews and Jewish culture. Malachi Haim Hacohen
             uses the biblical story of the rival twins, Jacob and Esau,
             and its subsequent retelling by Christians and Jews
             throughout the ages as a lens through which to illuminate
             changing Jewish-Christian relations and the opening and
             closing of opportunities for Jewish life in Europe. Jacob
             and Esau tells a new history of a people accustomed for over
             two-and-a-half millennia to forming relationships, real and
             imagined, with successive empires but eagerly adapting, in
             modernity, to the nation-state, and experimenting with both
             assimilation and Jewish nationalism. In rewriting this
             history via Jacob and Esau, the book charts two divergent
             but intersecting Jewish histories that together represent
             the plurality of Jewish European cultures.},

   Title = {Central European Jewish Émigrés and the Shaping of Postwar
             Culture: Studies in Memory of Lilian Furst
   Publisher = {MDPI},
   Editor = {Hacohen, MH and Julie Mell},
   Year = {2014},
   Abstract = {The nexus between innovative intellectual contributions and
             the émigré experience was at the center of the conference
             in Furst’s memory. European Jewish émigrés from Nazi
             Germany and Europe have become in the last two decades a
             major interdisciplinary research field, and their
             contributions to twentieth-century culture are well known.
             This conference focused on the émigrés’ role in the
             formation of postwar trans-Atlantic culture. We asked: How,
             why, and in what fashion did émigré dislocation, identity
             dilemmas, and Holocaust experience shape intellectual paths
             and utopias promising new homes that have, ironically,
             become highlights of European culture? We were mindful that
             we needed to explore religion and ethnicity among mostly
             secular intellectuals, who often no longer identified
             themselves as Jewish. We anticipated receiving a range of
             answers to the “Jewish Question”: a series of
             explorations of the Jewish European disaster, ending with
             portrayals of prospective new homes, whether in Europe, the
             U.S. or Israel, whether on Popper’s model of an Open
             Society, or on Furst’s model of home is somewhere else.
             Unexpectedly, the vision of Judeo-Christian civilization
             emerged as a focal interest for participants, reflecting the
             contemporary European search for identity and the historical
             interest in Jewish Catholics. We hope that we have provided
             in this volume new ways for understanding religion and
             ethnicity among the Jewish émigrés, and new directions for
             searching for the émigré impact on the shaping of postwar

   Abstract = {Popper and Agassi diverged on nationalism. Popper was a
             trenchant critic whereas Agassi formed a theory of liberal
             nationalism. At the root of their disagreement was
             Popper’s refusal of Jewish identity and rejection of
             Zionism, in contrast with Agassi’s affirmation of
             progressive Jewishness and liberal Zionism. Both Agassi and
             Popper, however, rejected ethnonationalism. To hedge against
             it, they ignored the claims of ethnocultural communities.
             This essay will highlight Agassi’s liberal theory of the
             nation state but urge that we overcome Critical
             Rationalists’ instinctive aversion to ethnicity, and
             accommodate ethnocultural communities. We should also
             explore again both Popper’s democratic imperialism and
             cosmopolitan diasporas, to think a future beyond

   Abstract = {The Talmud has only entered the sphere of the university in
             recent decades. While the struggle over biblical
             interpretation shaped Christian-Jewish relations for two
             millennia, Christian culture was hostile to the Talmud from
             its «discovery» in the High Middle Ages, and antisemites
             made the Talmudjude a major emblem. Modern liberal Jews,
             bent on emancipation, likewise sought to define the Jews as
             the biblical people. In recent decades, however, academic
             scholarship has reexplored the Talmud as a source of
             critical rationalism, modern legal concepts, and recognition
             of religious hybridity, making the Talmud a fountainhead of
             postmodern culture. The essay will place this surprising
             turn within the long-term history of the university and of
             Christian-Jewish relations. It will suggest that this
             historical anomaly represents an opportunity to use the
             Talmud to renovate liberal education, besieged by corporate
             technocratic culture.},

   Abstract = {In the past two decades, U.S. historians of Western
             colonialism and of central Europe have underlined empire’s
             normativity and the nation state’s exceptionalism. The
             implications of the imperial turn for Jewish European
             history are this essay’s subject. It focuses on the Jewish
             political experience of nation and empire in central Europe
             and, specifically, on its divergence in fin-de-siècle
             Germany and Austria. Both were nationalizing empires, but
             the former, at once a continental and overseas empire,
             abided by the nation state’s logic, which drove towards a
             uniformly ethnicized political culture, whereas the latter,
             a continental empire, nationalized against its will and
             experimented with federalism to attenuate nationalism and
             accommodate ethnocultural pluralism. The essay highlights
             the unique political opportunities which late imperial
             Austria opened for the Jews but projects them against a
             darker two-millennia-long Jewish engagement with empire. The
             imperial longue durée accounts both for liberal Jews’
             enchantment with the nation state, the maker of Jewish
             emancipation, and for traditional Jews’ continued loyalty
             to imperial ideals.},

   Abstract = {This essay uses the Viennese remigré writer and journalist,
             Friedrich Torberg (1908-1979), his Austrian Jewish cohort,
             and their invented "Central Europe" and "Austrian
             Literature" to argue for a paradigmatic shift in émigré
             historiography. The cosmopolitan narrative predominating in
             émigré historiography has marginalized traditional
             Judaism. By shifting the focus from the German to the
             Austrian émigrés, and from the European nation state to
             the Austrian Empire, historians can reclaim traditional
             Jewish culture and pluralize the hegemonic narrative. Late
             imperial Austria, constitutionally federalist and ethnically
             and culturally diverse, made room for a Jewish national
             culture in ways that Germany did not. The Austrian émigrés
             shaped visions of Central Europe that foregrounded
             Jewishness and provided wider space for Jewish life than
             comparable visions of leading German émigrés. Yet, even
             Austrian émigré visions remained largely incognizant of
             rabbinic culture, the core of traditional Jewish life. To
             make traditional Jews agents of Jewish European history,
             European historiography must now move to incorporate
             rabbinic culture. © 2014 © 2014 Taylor &

   Abstract = {In response to Nazi exclusion of the Jews from German
             society on racial grounds, Erich Auerbach (1892-1957), a
             secular Jewish intellectual inspired by cultural
             Protestantism and Catholicism, formed a vision of a
             cosmopolitan Judeo-Christian civilization that reintegrated
             the Jews as biblical founders and cultural mediators. But
             the integration expunged any mark of traditional Jewishness.
             Focusing on Christian figurative thinking (typology),
             Auerbach viewed the binding of Isaac through the
             crucifixion, and contemporary Jews as civilization's
             (unwilling and undeserving) martyrs. In the aftermath of the
             Holocaust, his cosmopolitanism reached a crisis, reflected
             in his postwar vision of Western decline. The progressive
             mandarin who had begun his intellectual life elevating
             Dante's care for everyday life and sympathizing with French
             realist social critique ended endorsing Hugh of St. Victor's
             alienation from reality and Pascal's acquiescence in
             totalitarian rule. © 2012 by the authors; licensee MDPI,

   Abstract = {Vienna's scientific culture has long attracted historians'
             attention. Impressive though the scientific accomplishments
             of Viennese scientists were, and recognized by numerous
             Nobel prizes, they alone do not account for the historians'
             interest. Rather, Vienna's culture of science was imbedded
             in broader humanistic visions and invested in political and
             educational projects of major historical significance.
             Viennese philosophy placed humanity's hopes in science and
             articulated its historical ramifications to the public,
             drawing out the political implications of competing
             scientific methodologies and tying them to dramatic
             historical events. This philosophy of science still
             reverberates nowadays in debates on liberty, markets, and
             government that quickly reveal their underpinning in the
             methodology of science. Vienna's scientific culture, it
             seems, has never ceased to capture the imagination, far
             beyond Austria. © 2009 Cambridge University

   Abstract = {The paper focuses on the problematic relationship between
             Talmon's liberalism and Zionism. My argument is that
             Talmon's nationalism (Zionism included)-historicist,
             romantic, visionary-lived in permanent tension with his
             liberalism-empiricist, pluralist, pragmatic. His critique of
             totalitarian democracy, reflecting his British experience,
             emerged independently from his Zionism, grounded in Central
             European nationalism. The two represented different worlds.
             Talmon lived in both, serving as an ambassador in-between
             them, without ever bringing them together. The essay's first
             section describes the political education of the young Jacob
             Talmon (née Flajszer) and the making of The Origins of
             Totalitarian Democracy. It demonstrates the independence of
             Talmon's Cold War liberal project from his Zionism. The
             second section places Talmon in the context of Cold War
             liberal discourse, showing how integral his critique of
             revolutionary politics was to contemporary liberalism. The
             third illustrates the tensions between Talmon's view of
             Jewish history and his liberalism, between his Zionism and
             his critique of revolutionary politics. Focusing on Talmon's
             analyses of nationalism, it highlights the ambiguity of his
             Zionism. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights

   Abstract = {This article explores the impact of Popper's exile on the
             formation of The Open Society. It proposes homelessness as a
             major motif in Popper's life and work. His emigration from
             clerical-fascist Austria, sojourn in New Zealand during
             World War II, and social isolation in postwar England
             constituted a permanent exile. In cosmopolitan philosophy,
             he searched for a new home. His unended quest issued in a
             liberal cosmopolitan vision of scientific and political
             communities pursuing truth and reform. The Open Society was
             their embodiment. As described, it expressed the ideals of
             fin-de-siècle Viennese progressives. Many progressives were
             assimilated Jews, whose dilemmas of national identity gave
             rise to cosmopolitan views that stripped ethnicity and
             nationality of significance. The Open Society was an
             admirable defense of liberalism against fascism, but it
             remained a utopian ideal. It could not provide a surrogate
             community or home where Popper might have reached his
             destination and rested.},

   Abstract = {This essay explores the methodological and historiographical
             legacy of Leonard Krieger (1918-1990), one of the most
             sophisticated and influential intellectual historians of his
             generation. The author argues that Krieger's mode of
             historicization exemplifies essential methodological
             practices neglected by contemporary historians and provides
             a model for scholarly political engagement. The essay is
             divided into four sections. The first provides an overview
             of Krieger's last two works: Time's Reasons, a
             methodological and historiographical study, and Ideas and
             Events, a posthumously published collection of essays
             written throughout Krieger's life. The second section,
             focusing on the essays on Sartre, Kant, and Pufendorf in
             Ideas and Events, defines Krieger's mode of historicization
             as the pursuit of theoretical tensions in conceptual
             structures and their explanation through the dilemmas of
             thinkers. Krieger's historicization of tensions and dilemmas
             was constrained, however, by his privileging of internal
             theoretical explanations over external contextual ones. The
             author argues that opening theories to broader historical
             contexts may provide more satisfactory historical
             explanations. Seeking to explain Krieger's apprehension
             about radical historicization, the third section traces
             Krieger's problem with coherence - the construction of
             historical patterns - from Ideas and Events to Time's
             Reasons. Krieger's conflicting commitments to the
             historicist conception of history and to universal values
             resulted in fear that historicization would lead to a
             complete dissolution of historical coherence and meaning.
             The fear, suggests the fourth section, was rooted in
             Krieger's political experience. Like many in his generation,
             Krieger believed that German Historismus was implicated in
             National Socialism. He sought to liberalize Historismus
             through a synthesis with natural law. This impossible
             project failed, but Krieger's engagement of the past to
             address contemporary problems remains exemplary. By
             constructing histories of current problems and historicizing
             his own position and concerns, he rendered history useful to
             the present. Such political engagement can provide a model
             for those seeking to re-engage history for radical political

   Abstract = {In The Open Society, written in New Zealand during WWII,
             Karl Popper invented the cosmopolitan democratic empire as
             an antidote to ethnonationalism. Popper, a non-Marxist
             socialist, protested that the nation-state was a charade
             and, in his portrayal of classical Athens, merged the images
             of Austria-Hungary and the British Commonwealth into a
             utopian democratic empire. The empire was an open society
             that would provide a home to the assimilated Jewish
             intelligentsia, which was excluded on racial grounds from
             the European nation-states. Jews were not to expect,
             however, recognition of their culture: Assimilation remained
             the best solution to the Jewish Question. Emerging from
             Jewish anxiety, Popper’s cosmopolitanism formed a
             marvelous imperial vision that failed to allay his own fears
             of antisemitism.},

   Abstract = {The Jacob & Esau typology collapsed in the aftermath of the
             Holocaust and the State of Israel. Christians renounced the
             supersessionist typology with Vatican II and Protestant
             initiatives for Christian–Jewish Dialogue. Religious
             Zionists wove Edom into a messianc vision of israel. Esau,
             never before a symbol for Muslims, now became an Arab. The
             1967 War and the 1968 Student Revolution signaled further
             changes in Europe and israel. East German-Jewish
             screenwriter, Jurek Becker's Holocaust novel, Jacob the Liar
             (1969), reversed the antisemitic stereotype and made Jacob
             an emblem of European humanity. Benjamin Tamuz’s novel
             Jacob (1972) relegitimated Jewish Diaspora cosmopolitanism.
             in the past three decades, Esau has become a Jewish and
             Israeli hero. Meir Shalev’s novel, Esau (1991), a saga of
             three-generations of a family of bakers in a village near
             Jerusalem, parodies the rabbinic typology: Esau is a
             diasporic Jew, Jacob a Zionist, and neither finds happiness.
             Orthodox British rabbi, Jonathan Sacks, tells a
             multicultural story of Jacob and Esau as "both precious to
             G-d." Modern Orthodox Israeli rabbi, Benjamin Lau, calls for
             an alliance of Jacob and Esau against Ishmael. Among the
             Jewish Settlers, Esau represents alternatively the secular
             Jew unjustly rejected, and the Israeli fighter bearing the
             weight of defense.},
