Mutability and Accommodation of the Torah in Jewish Mysticism

Absorbing Perfections

Moshe Idel

Yale University Press

This chapter focuses on mutability, specifically Torah mutability in Jewish mysticism. It introduces the four primary categories of Torah mutability, and briefly discusses and provides examples of each category. The discussion is more concerned with the combinatory category. This chapter stresses that there are a lot of discussions in Kabbalistic literature that do not follow clear-cut categories, but are rather combinations between two or more categories. One of the most common combinations is that between the Neoplatonic and combinatory models of mutability.

Keywords:   mutability, Torah, Jewish mysticism, combinatory, Neoplatonic, models of mutability
