Dr. Amos Funkenstein (1937-1995). Jewish historical scholar, author of such works as Perceptions of Jewish History from Antiquity to the Present (Tel Aviv, 1991). Probably nowhere near as cool as his name implies.
"I follow the late scholar of Jewish thought, Dr. Funkenstein, in defining historical consciousness as a useful and neglected middle term in this debate"
