    1. Lieb came across an interesting intellectual tradition, but didn't really seem to know what to do with it--and so there is a lot of unnecessary jargon in place of argument.The basic idea is that Ezekiel's vision, as describe din the Bible, has been taken up and used in different ways by subsequent groups. (There is a lot of Arthur Lovejoy's history of ideas here, although I suspect Lieb would not like the comparison).
