There is much to make of this work. It is an ethical treatise, a document, a manual for the tenets of three religions that can not see eye to eye. Rosenzweig attempts to reconcile the common traditions of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam with the base foundation of ethical analysis. The syntax is puzzling and geared for academics, but the purpose is crystal clear. It is a gem among volumes of works that gloss over or completely ignore the glaring truth- that the basis of our belief begins with a [...]
Several times over the last 45 years I have tried to read this book. I've never gotten more than a third of the way through it. I tried again this week, hoping that my greater experience and maturity would now grant me success. It was not to be. I now conclude that the problem is not me; it's the book. Much of it sounds like a parody of academic philosophical gobbledygook. Consider a few passages plucked at random from this "classic" book:"Yea is the beginning. Nay cannot be the beginning for it [...]
Franz Rosenzweig ist neben Buber der andere große deutsch-jüdische Denker des frühen zwanzigsten Jahrhunderts. Geschrieben in den Schützengräben des ersten Weltkrieges, ist "Der Stern der Erlösung" sein Hauptwerk. Systematisch ansprechend legt er hier seine Sicht der Dinge über Gott, Mensch und Gott und Mensch dar. Menschen, das sind dabei Juden, Christen, Moslems und Heiden, denen Rosenzweig, meint man, direkt in ihr Wesen schauen konnte. Dass er diesen Duktus und vermutlich auch diese D [...]
Rosenzweig es el que mejor comprendió la tragedia de la inevitable conexión entre nación y ética en el pensamiento de Hegel.Imperio Pág. 83En los años posteriores a la explosión de la Primera Guerra Mundial, aquellos que habían participado de la gran masacre intentaron desesperadamente de entender y controlar la crisis.

Why it might be appropriate to abandon a book?I don't realy now.But this one I did abandon. It is extremely boring.One has to have an academic degree in Philosophy to start this book.Once a friend said to me: "You know why I stopped reading Philosophy?"Me: "Tell me."Friend: "Because when I came to the end of a page I read I thought what did I learn from it. Am I any wiser than at the start of the page? No it gets me confused. So I stoped wasting my time."Me: "Good for you!"Well maybe I should ta [...]
A fascinating book but a bit beyond my level. The first 80 pages goes something like: "We can't see God, so he must not exist, but we feel something is there. Something is not nothing, so there is something and that something is God, but we can't be sure. So how can be sure? How can we know something that we can't be sure of? Because something is there, but even if it's not there, something has to be there because we thought of it, so how can we say there's nothing there?"
Most likely the first book to pioneer the dialogue of Continental Philosophy with both Judaism and Christianity. Written from the trenches during WWI, this is a fascinating philosophical/theological text, sidestepping the Hegelian rhetoric of its time-borrowing instead from the poetic style of Goethe.
dip into the second out of three parts. have already written about it. i don't know about god but metaphysically it is crazy [dull expression].
