Franz Rosenzweig (1886-1929), one of the most daunting modern Jewish thinkers, exercises a profound influence on contemporary philosophy and modern Jewish thought. In this seminal study, Barbara Galli explores Rosenzweig's statement that his notes to Halevi's poems exemplify a practical application of the philosophic system he set out in The Star of Redemption. Through an extended, multifaceted investigation of Rosenzweig's thought, Galli uncovers his philosophy of translation, out of which she determines and unravels his philosophic conclusion and his belief that there is only one language. In the final chapters, she concentrates on the notes to the poems, and in doing so attempts to philosophize according to Rosenzweig's own mandate: full speech is world and response.


"Galli's book makes a major contribution, on several levels, to the knowledge of Franz Rosenzweig in the English-speaking world. This book also sheds more light on why it is imperative that any adequate future reflection on the history of the twentieth-century religious and philosophical thought reckon with the full importance of Rosenzweig in that history". Studies in Religion "This is a huge, daring, and important contribution. Galli's achievements are remarkable, and the book is studded with important and original discussions." Michael Fishbane, Nathan Cummings Professor of Jewish Studies, University of Chicago "Galli's excellent translations and provocative commentary illuminate Rosenzweig's 'speech-thinking,' as presented in his Star of Redemption and later essays, in relation to the task of translation."
