Abstract:

The Star of Redemption is widely recognized as a key document modern existential thought and a significant contribution to wish theology in the twentieth century. An affirmation of what Rosenzweig called "the new thinking", the work ensconces common sense in the place of abstract, conceptual philosophizing and posits the validity of the concrete, individual human being over that of "humanity" in general. Fusing philosophy and theology, it assigns both Judaism and Christianity distinct but equally important roles in the spiritual structure of the world, and finds in both biblical religions approaches toward a comprehension of reality. Resuming the anti-Hegelian revolt of Schopenhauer, Feuerbach, Kierkegaard, and Nietzsche, Rosenzweig repudiates the attempt by German idealism to reduce to one essence the three elements of reality: God, the world, and man. In The Star of Redemption, he sets forth a system in which these elements are shown to be independent, irreducible from each other, and linked through the "paths" of creation, revelation, and redemption.
