To Mend the World: Foundations of Post-Holocaust Jewish Thought

"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.
