Abstract:

"Franz Rosenzweig, one of the century's great Jewish thinkers, wrote his gem of a "little book" in 1921 as a more accessible precis of his famous Star of Redemption. An elegant introduction to Rosenzweig's "new thinking," Understanding the Sick and the Healthy was written for a lay audience and takes the form of an ironic narrative about convalescence. With superb simplicity and beauty, it puts forth an important critique of the nineteenth-century German Idealist philosophical tradition and expresses a powerful vision of Jewish religion. Harvard's Hilary Putnam provides a new introduction to this classic work for a contemporary audience. Readers with an interest in Jewish philosophy, twentieth-century philosophy, or the philosophy of religion will find Rosenzweig's "little book" a treasure."--BOOK JACKET.
