Lewis S. Feuer, one of the towering figures in American academic and intellectual life, made striking contributions to several fields and sub-specialties, especially sociology and philosophy, but also the history of science, the history of the Jews, and the history of Marxism. Brandeis is honored to hold Feuer’s papers in Goldfarb Library.
