Letters of Love rereads the oeuvre of Franz Rosenzweig (1886-1929) in light of his recently published correspondence with Margrit (Gritli) Rosenstock-Huessy (1893-1959). This reading of more than one thousand letters is indispensable for any future research on Rosenzweig. Ephraim Meir has made the first major attempt to study this document humain in order to come to a new picture of Rosenzweig's life and thought, especially in Star of Redemption.

Review quote

« Epbraim Meir's book is the first greater attempt to scientifically evaluate the Gritli Letters and to relate them to Rosenzweig's writings, especially to his religious--philosophical main work, 'Der Stern der Erlosung' [Star of Redemption]. With his work, Ephraim Meir does remarkably well -- and on a superior intellectual level -- in maintaining the balance between biographical representation and philosophical discussion, in such a way that one becomes more understandable through the other. His book will doubtless refresh and give new life to the discussion of the man and the thinker, Franz Rosenzweig.
