Abstract: From the late nineteenth until the middle of the twentieth century, Jews and their sympathizers devoted considerable research, energy, and ingenuity to the documentation of signal Jewish contributions to Western civilization. Whatever objections critics might have raised regarding the extent of the Jewish role, the positive assessment of the discipline, field, or ideal to which Jews had allegedly contributed was not usually a matter of controversy, so that the authors of this literature generally take the intrinsic value of the 'contribution' for granted
