Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Rosenzweig's life combined a fabulous spiritual search, a profound engagement with philosophy as well as with Judaism, and enormous accomplishment in the face of overwhelming physical handicaps. His thought is both illuminated by and realized in his amazing life. Nahum Glatzer has brought both the life and the thought together in this marvelous collection. There is no better introduction to this seminal Jewish thinker. --Hilary Putnam, Harvard University

Glatzer's anthology not only makes available an important array of texts; it also presents Rosenzweig's life in a way that is as moving as it is informative. --Michael Morgan, Indiana University

This is an excellent and important volume. I'm very glad you have brought it back into print--especially in an edition that is so faithful to the original. --Robert Gluck, University at Albany

Booknews
Was Rosenzweig (1886-1929) an observant Jew or the assimilated German author of Hegel und der Staat (Hegel and the State)? In his introduction, Glatzer responds to that query and other paradoxes of the Frankfort resident's life and works. This edition (previous, 1961) bears a new foreword by Paul Mendes-Flohr, and includes a chronology; list of Rosenzweig's writings; annotated list of persons referred to in the text; and bibliography in English, Hebrew and Yiddish, German and other European languages updated to 1997. Paper edition ($16.95), unseen. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
