How does one "think" in Jewish? What does it mean to speak in English of Yiddish as Jewish, as a certain intermediary generation of immigrants and children of immigrants from Jewish Eastern Europe has done?;A fascination with this question prompted Jonathan Boyarin, a thinker in critical theory and Jewish ethnography, to offer the Jewish perspective on the vexed issue of identity politics presented here. Boyarin's essays explore the ways in which a Jewish - or, more particularly, Yiddish - idiom complicates the question of identity. Ranging from explorations of a Lower East Side synagogue to Fichte's and Derrida's contrasting notions of the relation between the Jews and the idea of Europe, from the Lubavitch Hasidim to accounts of self-making by Judith Butler and Charles Taylor, "Thinking in Jewish" is intended for students of critical theory, cultural studies and Jewish studies.;Jonathan Boyarin is the author of "Storm from Paradise: The Politics of Jewish Memory" and is the editor of "The Ethnography of Reading and Remapping Memory: The Politics of TimeSpace"
