This volume brings together Rosenzweig's central essays on theology and philosophy, including two works available for the first time in English: the conclusion to Rosenzweig's book Hegel and the State, and Rosenzweig's famous letter to Rudolph Ehrenberg known as the Urzelle of the Star of Redemption, an essential work for understanding Rosenzweig, Weimar theology and philosophy, and German idealism and the existential reaction of the period. Additional selections are presented in new or revised translations. Introduction and notes by Franks and Morgan set Rosenzweig’s works in context and illuminate his role as one of the key thinkers of the period.

Both the translations and the commentaries are first-rate. This selection of Rosenzweig's shorter writings throws important light not only on Rosenzweig's thought, but on the history of early twentieth-century philosophy. --Alasdair MacIntyre, University of Notre Dame An eminently needed book. --Emil L. Fackenheim, Hebrew University, Jerusalem Excellent presentation of Rosenzweig's ideas. The commentary is the most illuminating and informative I've yet seen. One can finally understand Franz Rosenzweig's work in the context of German culture and philosophy. --Michael A. Signer, University of Notre Dame
