From Ionia to Jena

The contributions in this volume explore the dialogue between one of the most innovative thinkers of the first half of the 20th century and his philosophical references.

From Ionia to Jena

Franz Rosenzweig's approach toward the history of philosophy was, if anything, profoundly ambivalent. No other thinker has so often declared the end of the classical metaphysics - from Parmenides to Hegel, from Ionia to Jena - and simultaneously drawn so much from the history of philosophy for his own philosophical project. Kant's critical philosophy, Schelling's conception of radical temporality, Hegel's dialectical method, Schopenhauer's discovery of the individual within the philosophical system, Nietzsche's critique of religion, Kierkegaard's paradox and Hermann Cohen's philosophy of correlation are just a few examples from the history of philosophy that Rosenzweig builds on and integrates into his own system. What was the common ground that allowed Rosenzweig to unify this vast variety of philosophical insights? Was this process of unification homogeneous and consistent, or did it amount to more eclectic conglomeration of a diverse range of philosophical ideas? Moreover, was Rosenzweig's close connection to the history of philosophy one element that prevented him from radically breaking away from his predecessors? Or did he ultimately manage to integrate it into a truly new and groundbreaking framework? The contributions in this volume explore the dialogue between one of the most innovative thinkers of the first half of the 20th century and his philosophical references. They seek to identify these references and examine how Rosenzweig redefined them in his philosophical project. They do so by searching for the individual reader who drew from all these various influences as well as the universal thinker behind the reader, who systematized all these influences anew. With contributions by Anne Eusterschulte, Ruth HaCohen, Antonios Kalatzis, Beate Ulrike La Sala, Benjamin Pollock, Orr Scharf and Ynon Wygoda.

Are religions tissues of superstition and repression, or repositories of the highest hopes and aspirations of humanity, or perhaps both at the same time? For many of those thinkers who lived through the horrors and upheavals of the first half of the twentieth-century, this old question acquired a new urgency.

In recent decades Giorgio Agamben, Alain Badiou, and Slavoj Žižek have shown the centrality of Paul to western political and philosophical thought and made the Apostle a central figure in left-wing discourses far removed from traditional theological circles. Yet the recovery of Paul beyond Christian theology owes a great deal

Saitya Brata Das rigorously examines Schelling's theologico-political works and sets his thought against his more dominant contemporary, Hegel. Das argues that Schelling inaugurates a new thinking outside of Occidental metaphysics, by a paradoxical manner of exit, which prepares for the post-metaphysical philosophy of Martin Heidegger, Franz Rosenzweig and Jacques Derrida.
