Jewish Redemptive Epistemologies, Hegelian Teshuvot: Soloveitchik, Rosenzweig and Kook

Elad Lapidot
From the journal Naharaim

Abstract

This paper consists in a reflection on the conceptual nerve center of Franz Rosenzweig’s thought and heritage that is the category of redemption as an epistemological category. The reflection is articulated through a comparative study of the redemptive epistemologies of three modern Jewish thinkers: Franz Rosenzweig, Rabbi Yoseph Dov Soloveitchik and HaRav Avraham Yitzchak HaCohen Kook. The comparison arises from a basic feature that this paper identifies as common to all three modern visions of epistemic Jewish redemption: they all feature Hegelian interpretations of the traditional Jewish category of teshuva.
