Online Appendices

for Leo Strauss on Moses Mendelssohn

Edited and translated by Martin D. Yaffe

On this website, Martin D. Yaffe supplements his book of translations of Leo Strauss’s writings on Moses Mendelssohn with these additional translations of Strauss’s German renderings of (selections from) Mendelssohn’s Commentary on Maimonides’ “Logical Terms” and of Mendelssohn’s The Soul. These two Hebrew writings Strauss also annotated extensively for his German-speaking reader. Yaffe therefore translated Strauss’s annotations as well.
