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 thephilosophical and religious sides of his life. An additional presence in the book isLudwig Wittgenstein, who, although not a practicing Jew, thought about religion inways that Putnam juxtaposes to the views of Rosenzweig, Buber, and Levinas. Putnamexplains the leading ideas of each of these great thinkers, bringing out what, inhis opinion, constitutes the decisive intellectual and spiritual contributions ofeach of them. Although the religion discussed is Judaism, the depth and originalityof these philosophers, as incisively interpreted by Putnam, make their thoughtnothing less than a guide to life.
