Item description for To Mend the World: Foundations of Post-Holocaust Jewish Thought by Emil L. Fackenheim & George Borchardt Inc...

"This subtle and nuanced study is clearly Fackenheim's most important book." --Paul Mendes-Flohr

..". magnificent in sweep and in execution of detail." --Franklin H. Littell

In To Mend the World Emil L. Fackenheim points the way to Judaism's renewal in a world and an age in which all of our notions--about God, humanity, and revelation--have been severely challenged. He tests the resources within Judaism for healing the breach between secularism and revelation after the Holocaust. Spinoza, Rosenzweig, Hegel, Heidegger, and Buber figure prominently in his account.

Reviews - What do customers think about To Mend the World: Foundations of Post-Holocaust Jewish Thought?

A major work of a major Jewish thinker   Feb 10, 2005
Emil Fackenheim was one of the great Jewish thinkers of the twentieth century. He was a person of great integrity who deeply cared for the Jewish people. His understanding of Jerusalem as the spiritual center of the Jewish people was one major element of his thought. His concern with Jewish survival after the Shoah was another central element. As a survivor of Sachsenhausen concentration camp, as one who was trained as a Rabbi, and became an academic philosopher he had a background which moved him to a very deep reading and thinking about Jewish history. All this comes to focus in 'To Mend the World' where he outlines for the Jewish people centered in Jerusalem a way of hope toward the future. He does this through reading of history and midrashim traditional religious texts, and creating a Jewish world of thought of his own.
