This timeline presents a parallel history of intellectual developments in the Jewish and non-Jewish world from ancient to contemporary times. It is intended both to provide a concise history of Jewish thought, as well as to help bring out some connections between the often divergent universes of Jewish intellectual history and non-Jewish intellectual history, perhaps yielding something of a broader perspective within which to appreciate both sets of intellectual achievements. The center (light blue) columns list the titles of Jewish and non-Jewish works — typically books, seforim, or other texts and publications — along with the author name(s), which are usually linked to corresponding Wikipedia articles. The outer (gray) columns list important political events in the Jewish and non-Jewish world, along with their principle actors, if relevant.Check it out.
