In To Mend the World Emil L. Fackenheim points the way toJudaism'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 resourceswithin Judaism for healing the breach between secularism and revelation after theHolocaust. Spinoza, Rosenzweig, Hegel, Heidegger, and Buber figure prominently inhis account.
