This user-friendly guide will help students of the 'Star' to be able to discuss at a basic level what, at least conceptually, Rosenzweig intended to say and how all that he says is interrelated.


'A valuable addition to the continued interest in Rosenzweig's philosophy throughout the 1990s. The author succeeds in clarifying the meaning of the original work using diagrams in places to aid his cause. I found the layout of the book particularly helpful The author had set himself a difficult task, viz. 'to present the PASHAT (simple meaning) of the text, and not REMES (what the text alludes to), DeRASH (how the text may be applied to contemporary situations) or SOD (what the text may mean at a deeper conceptual or spiritual level)'. I believe that Samuelson has succeeded in this admirable aim on a philosophical classic more suited to the latter.' - J.W. Phelan, Centre for Jewish-Christian Relations

'This commentary will serve effectively as a teacher’s manual. It deserves a place in any serious collection of modern Jewish thought.' - Religious Studies Review, Vol 30
