Within ancient Judaism may be found development precursive to the Protestant ethic. Besides the hostility to magic, or disenchantment of the magical world view, these include: a collective religious discipline typified by a perception of time as the schedule of activities; an open or linear time perspective or "frozen" eschatology; an the need to create or establish one's personal identity as an heir to the divine blessings.
