Franz Rosenzweig's "The New Thinking"

Franz Rosenzweig's "The New Thinking" Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Book News Annotation:

Rosensweig (1886-1929), who collaborated with Martin Buber on a new German translation of the Bible, wrote "The New Thinking" as a supplementary guide to The Star of Redemption (1921). Udoff (philosophy, Baltimore Hebrew U.) and Galli (Judaic Studies, U. of Alabama) present for the first time in translation this essay, a letter and reviews treating the Star of Redemption, and situate Rosensweig's new Jewish thought and the renewed interest in it in the modern/postmodern philosophical spectra.
