Personal and Intellectual Development 1. Briefe an Margrit Rosenstock-Huessy, eds. Rosenzweig was born inand grew up as the only child of Georg and Adele Rosenzweig, in an intellectually and culturally vibrant, assimilated Jewish home in Kassel. It is in this sense that the community singing the song of praise is already a redeemed community. We grasp the things of the world through our naming of them and in the stories we tell about them.

Several times over the last 45 years I have tried to read this book. One might suggest that Rosenzweig shares with the German Idealists the conviction that the fundamental questions human beings ask—including those questions about the relationship between the individual self and the whole of the world which perplexed Rosenzweig during his own personal and intellectual development—can only find their grounded answers within the context of a philosophical system.

Moreover, Rosenzweig devotes considerable attention to the particular quality of the nothingness experienced in the fear of death. Search my Subject Specializations: While Rosenzweig insists on the fundamentally independent natures of these kinds of being, the method by which he traces each’s self-generation out of its particular nothing is the same. The first part of the chapter ends with an analysis of the psalms that are chanted in the Hallel service as keys to the liturgical relation to eternity.

Rosenzweig earned his PhD in the summer of for part of this work, and the book was nearly completed before the outbreak of the First World War, but Rosenzweig would only come to publish it in Personal and Intellectual Development Rosenzweig was born inand grew up as the only child of Georg and Adele Rosenzweig, in an intellectually and culturally vibrant, assimilated Jewish home in Kassel.

After the war ended, he returned home first to Kassel, and then to Freiburg, devoting himself entirely to writing. Jewish Philosophy as a Guide to Life: In the month before his death, furthermore, Cohen allowed Rosenzweig to read the proofs to his last great work, Religion of Reason out of the Sources of Judaismpublished after his death, in 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?


Martinus Nijhoff, [4 th edition]. This is the vision of religious Truth already expounded upon in previous scholarship.

The star of redemption

If you think you should have access to this title, please contact your librarian. Determined to embrace the faith as the early Christians did, he resolved to live as an observant Jew first, before becoming Christian.

Now, in order for each element to fulfill rosenzweug through its relations to its others, Rosenzweig asserts, each must undergo a certain transformation. Thus eschewing the tendency of the philosophical tradition to root all beings in a single, unconditioned ground, Rosenzweig begins the Star by showing how all particular beings—divine, worldly, personal—can be understood as generating themselves each out of its own particular nothing.

If this were the case, Rosenzweig reasoned, Hegel couldn’t possibly have been the author of the text.

The star of redemption

The rosenzweit of Rosenzweig’s thoughts on translating stretch back to the speech-thinking he developed in the Star. In the systems of German Idealism, the philosopher seeks to attain the standpoint of the Absolute—the very Absolute out of which all particular beings are understood to have unfolded dialectically.

God, Man, and the World: Machine translation like Deepl or Google Translate is a useful starting point for translations, but translators must revise errors as necessary and confirm that the translation is accurate, rather than simply copy-pasting machine-translated text into the English Wikipedia.

Concerning references to Judaism and Christianity in the Gritli Letters, see: Rosenzweig here draws methodological consequences from the very notion of revelation itself. But, he says, the nature of the act of love, and ultimately of the future Kingdom of God which is to be founded upon acts of love, is such that they not only reflect their com- mon point of origin in revelation, but also contain attributes that stem from the creaturely aspect of the human personality.

Speech, for Rosenzweig, is thus not only a tool for grasping relations. However, Rosenzweig reasons, particulars that are ultimately the dialectical product of absolute unity cannot be said to be particulars at all.

At the center of this speech-thinking is a philosophy of dialogue which traces the awakening of selfhood through an I-You relation into which the self is called by the Absolute other. Redfmption Long rated it liked it Oct 30, Love Poetry and Prayer Life and Thought after The Star 4.

Franz Rosenzweig (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)

In order to convey precisely the unfamiliar, authentic quality of the original Biblical text, Rosenzweig and Buber made an effort rosenzweog imitate certain characteristics of the original text not often attended to in translations seeking to convey the meaning of texts literally. Precisely in view of the epistemological concern with Truth in Part iii, we can understand, of course, that even the centrality of love in the discussion on prayer in Part ii stems from an understanding that love, in and of itself, is but the concrete expression of divine goodness and Truth, and therefore of eternity, in personal experience.

Jewish Liturgical Reasoning Author s: Nay cannot be the beginning for it could only be a Nay of the Nought.

Afterwards he moved to Frankfurt, where he created a “particular Jewish sphere” and remained the rest of his life. We can surmise that for Rosenzweig, redemption of human and worldly existence from the tragic implications of mortality is possible and warranted, but that it is also dependent upon the double function of redemphion in terms of its epistemological reorientation to reality and Truth, on the one hand, and the realization of love in the world, on the other.
