The Jewish return into history : reflections in the age of Auschwitz and a new Jerusalem by Emil L Fackenheim( Book )

10 editions published between 1978 and 1983 in English and held by 622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is divided into three parts. The first, consisting of a single brief essay, deals with the tension created by revelation in the secular world. Part two, "The Commanding Voice of Auschwitz," develops the thought that we are forbidden to grant Hitler posthumous victories. A series of essays takes up the implications of the Holocaust for Jewish faith and life, as well as the ethical challenges, successes, and failures for both Jews and non-Jews. The final section of the book leads the reader from the events of the Holocaust to the founding of modern Israel. It shows the deep connection, in history and in faith, of these two events. A continuity of thought and theme runs through these essays, written over the last decade, that offers moving insights into our unparalleled period of Jewish history. --from inside jacket

If, in content and in method, philosophy and religion conflict, can there be a Jewish philosophy? What makes a Jewish thinker a philosopher? Emil L.

Fackenheim also contemplates the task of Jewish philosophy after the Holocaust. While providing access to key Jewish thinkers of the past, this volume highlights the exciting achievements of one of today's most creative and most important Jewish philosophers

The God within : Kant, Schelling, and historicity by Emil L Fackenheim( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 381 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For nineteenth-century thinkers, the central problem of religious consciousness in the modern West was the tension between prevailing concepts of individual autonomy and the traditional Judaeo-Christian claim for divine revelation. The God Within brings together ten of Professor Emil Fackenheim's essays on the German Idealists who struggled to resolve this tension." "All the essays gathered here are concerned with the radical singularity of history and existence on the one hand and the demands of philosophical truth on the other. They are informed by Professor Fackenheim's engagement with the profound philosophical challenges of our day - particularly his efforts, as a Jewish theologian, to confront the horrors of the Holocaust. We see, through Fackenheim's exposition, how these thinkers sought to come to terms with the presence of radical evil, a problem whose modern relevance is explored in this volume's epilogue, the 1988 essay 'Holocaust and Weltanschauung: Philosophical Reflections on Why They Did It.'"--Jacket

Jewish philosophy and the academy( Book )

8 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 255 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jewish Philosophy and the Academy reflects in broad terms on the current state of Jewish philosophy in the university. This generation of university teachers lives at a unique historic junction. It is the last to be taught by the giants of European Wissenschaft des Judentums and the first to experience the remarkable expansion of Judaic scholarship in Israel and abroad. Emil Fackenheim suggests that if we are indebted to Athens for the philosophical method, we are also indebted to Jerusalem for the ethical content of philosophy, which is both an intellectual and a moral challenge. This dual challenge shapes the diverse papers in this volume
