A reinterpretation of thinkers from Benjamin and Rosenzweig to Simone Weil and Derrida.

Judaism and Modernity: Philosophical Essays challenges the philosophical presentation of Judaism as the sublime ‘other’ of modernity. Here, Gillian Rose develops a philosophical alternative to deconstruction and post-modernism by critically re-engaging the social and political issues at stake in every reconstruction.


  • A fierce vigilance of thought.

  • This is a book to make one want to read philosophy once again. I can think of no higher praise.
