Following a discussion on the Avodah mailing list (scroll down to: “How to Teach History”) regarding the popularity of Rabbi Samson Raphael Hirsch’s teachings in general and his outlook on Western culture in particular, I am making my 2006 paper Culture, a Foundation for Torah? available for download. It was published that year in a festschrift celebrating the 111st anniversary of the founding of the Schomre Thora in Basel. A German translation was included in my 2008 book Ein lärmendes, reissendes Wildwasser.
