Product Overview

A rare collection of Rosenzweig's influential work on literary figures, publishers, and music, including Viktor von Weizsacker's 1930 essay. A Commemorating Writing.

Published here in English for the first time, these essays offer a glimpse into the cultural and social dimensions of Franz Rosenzweig's thought -- an aspect of his philosophy that has too often been ignored by an overemphasis on his status as a religious thinker.

Barbara E. Gaili provides a broader context for Rosenzweig's concepts, especially his orientation in the modern world and concerns regarding modernity and technological developments. Galli's overriding theme of Rosenzweig and the modern world bridges his philosophical perspective on pagans, Christians, and Jews with his views of Moses, Mendelssohn, the cultural significance of Lessing, the writing of Stefan George, and even the modern phenomenon of the concert hall as recorded on the phonograph.

As Galli explicates Rosenzweig's cultural musings, devotees of Rosenzweig will find new and refreshing approaches to his philosophical writings.
