(p.13) 1 On Rosenzweig's Reception of the Philosophy of Hermann Cohen
Exemplarity and Chosenness
Stanford University Press

This chapter examines the influence of Hermann Cohen on the philosophy of Franz Rosenzweig. It identifies what Rosenzweig acknowledges as his debt to Cohen and those aspects of Cohen's thought that he did not directly acknowledge but which nevertheless become part of his thinking. The chapter considers Rosenzweig's philosophy as growing out of his fundamental concern to preserve a notion of the concrete human individual against generalization by means of concepts, and analyzes how he framed and developed his thinking of Jewish uniqueness in terms of election.

Keywords:   Franz Rosenzweig, Hermann Cohen, philosophy, human individual, Jewish uniqueness, election
