Ruderman's book is a remarkable accomplishment. We now have a much better understanding of the continuous involvement of Jewish scholars within a natural philosophy framework from before the early modern period until the eighteenth century.. . He has illustrated the richness of the Jewish intellectual tradition in the early modern period as it contributed to the development of science in the west."—Keith R. Benson, Jewish History. "Ruderman's work is invaluable for those interested in the subject of early modern Jews, the history of science, or the way in which the study of science, or the attempt to assimilate foreign ideas, changed and developed a minority community. . . Ruderman has produced a fine work which will lead to further studies. He has begun to illuminate the influence of science on Jewish thought in the early modern period." — Michael T. Walton, Renaissance Quarterly.
