Franz Rosenzweig: His Life and Thoughtby Nahum N. Glatzer
Franz Rosenzweig was a prominent figure in the development of Jewish existentialism and a major influence on the work Emil Fackenheim amongst others. This work offers an array of significant texts and presents Rosenzweig's life in an informative way.
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
