includes all philosophy
carried out by Jews, or in relation to the religion of Judaism
. Until modern Haskalah
(Jewish Enlightenment) and Jewish emancipation
, Jewish philosophy was preoccupied with attempts to reconcile coherent new ideas into the tradition of Rabbinic Judaism
; thus organizing emergent ideas that are not necessarily Jewish into a uniquely Jewish scholastic framework and world-view. With their acceptance into modern society, Jews with secular educations embraced or developed entirely new philosophies to meet the demands of the world in which they now found themselves.
