AJ Heschel and the Philosopher's Dictionary

Abraham J. Heschel's A Concise Dictionary of Hebrew Philosophical Terms (Cincinnati, 1941) was recently added to This 86 page mimeographed booklet was apparently composed by himself and students at the Hebrew Union College. It's largely based on Klatzkin, but it is in English. It's quite interesting, and very probably still useful to people.

Here's a sample page:


  1. which klatzkin? any relation to eliyahu and jacob?

  2. I mean Jacob Klatzkin, who wrote the 4-volume אוצר המונחים הפלוסופיים ואנתולוגיה פלוסופית.

  3. You're welcome - I figured I had had a copy of it hanging around for a while and should share it with others :)
