Overview

Here, for the first time, faithfully translated in their entirety, are the principal texts for which Franz Rosenzweig initiated the project that would become The Star of Redemption.

Included in the volume are Rosenzweig's essay, "The New Thinking"; four important reviews, of The Star of Redemption, and his 1917 letter to Rudolf Ehrenberg, the "germcell" of The Star.

Barbara E. Galli's own essay touches on the basis concepts of Rosenzweig's work, while pointing to and going beyond his scholarship. Alan Udoff's provocative closing essay situates Rosenzweig's thought in the context of modern and postmodern philosophical concerns and suggests a new direction in assessing the philosopher's theological accomplishment.

This volume is a perfect guide for students of the great philosopher and for a broader general audience seeking an introduction to Rosenzwieg's ideas.
