Absorbing Perfections

Moshe Idel

Yale University Press

This concluding chapter provides an overview of the entire book, starting with Hasidism and the different forms of Kabbalah. It then combines the topics on Greek and Jewish attitudes, before examining the modern implications of the hermeneutical concepts that are found in Kabbalah. Finally, the chapter ends with a look at the bibliocentric nature of both medieval and Jewish mysticism, using the elites' vision of religion as helpful to experiences of plenitude.

Keywords:   Hasidism, Kabbalah, Greek, Jewish, hermeneutical concepts, Jewish mysticism, plenitude
