“Five Jews almost single-handedly transformed key academic disciplines, with profound implications for Western thought in general. They were Zurich’s and Berlin’s Albert Einstein in physics; Vienna’s Sigmund Freud in psychiatry; Paris’s Emile Durkheim in sociology; New York’s Franz Boas in anthropology; and Vienna’s and Cambridge University’s Ludwig Wittgenstein in philosophy.”

— from the book “The Sacred Chain: the History of the Jews” (New York; HarperCollins; 1994) by Jewish author Norman F. Cantor, p. 301, softcover edition
