Carmichael, Calum: Ideas and the Man: Remembering David Daube
2004. VIII, 174 Seiten. Kt 39,00 €
Daube's career as a scholar spanned the entire 20th century with roughly equal periods of time spent first in Germany, then in Great Britain, and latterly in the United States. Coming from an orthodox Jewish upbringing, he became absorbed in the classical tradition of the German educational system. Although he gave up his commitment to an orthodox Jewish life, its influence remained. His immersion in the intricacies of a number of legal traditions made him alert to elements of the law that find expression in the world of literature, be it Christian, Greek, Jewish or Roman.
One of his major contributions was to revolutionize prevailing perceptions about the New Testament by his sophisticated understanding of how Talmudic law and literature illuminate that body of material. Most striking of all was that, no matter what branch of knowledge engaged Daube's attention, he exhibited a unique capacity to convey unexpected insights about so many facets of human conduct at all times and places.
