About Gershom Scholem:
"Scholem's absolute rigor and integrity--as well as his dedication to the study of magic--inspired Saul Lieberman, an authority on the Talmud, to offer the greatest backhanded tribute in the history of scholarly irony when introducing him at the Jewish Theological Seminary: "You know that I believe that mysticism is nonsense, total and complete nonsense, but the history of nonsense is scholarship. And the man who is about to speak knows more about the history of nonsense than anyone has ever known.""

Najbolji poznavalac Kabale i ukupne jevrejske mistične tradicije, Geršom Šolem je napisao ovu kapitalnu studiju koja je bez premca u ovoj oblasti. Šolem je bio po svemu izuzetna ličnost, pisac filosofskog obrazovanja, intiman prijatelj Valtera Benjamina, Hane Arent, Franca Kafke, profesor na Hebrejskom universitetu u Jerusalimu za predmet Jevrejski misticizam i Kabala. Nemoguće je nabrojati sve teme koje Geršom Šolem pokreće svojom izuzetnom knjigom Glavni tokovi jevrejskog misticizma. Činjenica koju niko ne osporava jeste da je uvid u jevrejski misticizam koji je dao ovim svojim delom označio pravi preokret u gledanju na ovu vrstu mistike i njeno tumačenje. Može se slobodno reći da je Geršom Šolem inspirisao mnoge poznate pisce, umetnike i naučnike da u ovoj vrsti tradicije potraže izvore za svoj književni rad, filosofske i naučne studije. Glavni tokovi jevrejskog misticizma je, van sumnje, knjiga neophodna svakoj ozbiljnoj kulturi koja pretenduje da prati glavne tokove evropske misli.
