Distinguished philosopher Hilary Putnam, who is also a
practicing Jew, questions the thought of three major Jewish
philosophers of the 20th century Franz Rosenzweig, Martin Buber,
and Emmanuel Levinas to help him reconcile the philosophical and
religious sides of his life. An additional presence in the book is
Ludwig Wittgenstein, who, although not a practicing Jew, thought
about religion in ways that Putnam juxtaposes to the views of
Rosenzweig, Buber, and Levinas. Putnam explains the leading ideas
of each of these great thinkers, bringing out what, in his opinion,
constitutes the decisive intellectual and spiritual contributions
of each of them. Although the religion discussed is Judaism, the
depth and originality of these philosophers, as incisively
interpreted by Putnam, make their thought nothing less than a guide
