Editorial Reviews

Review

"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 "This is a monumental book by a Jew possessed of an intellect equalled only by his love of the Jewish people ... " Jewish Book News

From the Back Cover

Tikkun--the mending of the world and the faith of the contemporary Jew after the Holocaust--is the theme that Emil Fackenheim addresses in his most important book. Fackenheim looks to the great philosophers of Western thought--Spinoza, Rosenzweig, Hegel, and Husserl--seeking answers to the moral debasement this century has witnessed.

By Shalom Freedman HALL OF FAME on February 9, 2005
Format: Paperback
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.

To Mend the World is a must read for any serious student of the Shoah. The writing is absolutely brilliant and each page makes one pause in serious reflection. I consistently refer back to this marvelous manuscript.

So, so. There is meaning in everything if you look for it, said Arnold Zweig, Maybe there is something to Fackenheim too, I don't see it.
