From the PublisherThis collection is in many ways a Festschrift for the late Jewish philosopher Emil Fackenheim ... The collection does him honor as one of the twentieth century's leading Jewish philosophers and as a model for philosophic practice.— Journal of Ecumenical Studies
"Morgan and Pollock have allowed the contributors to address, in an astonishingly thought-provoking and coherent way, three central and urgent themes in contemporary philosophy, theology, history, literature, Judaism, and Christianity: What are we to do and think about the Holocaust? What is the importance of the state of Israel for Jews and Judaism, and for modern Jewish history and philosophy? In what philosophic premises is Fackenheim's thought rooted, and what are their implications?"— Kenneth Hart Green, editor of Jewish Philosophy and the Crisis of Modernity: Essays and Lectures in Modern Jewish Thought"
