This chapter examines the development of Franz Rosenzweig's thought as a philosophy of history. It considers his early rejection of historical relativism, the messianic epistemology he proposed in his essay “The New Thinking,” and the messianic history he laid out in The Star of Redemption. The chapter also discusses Rosenzweig's interpretation of messianism as the drive toward the realization of universal justice in history, and suggests that his theory of individuality also took shape in conjunction with a radical rethinking of time and history.

Keywords:   Franz Rosenzweig, philosophy of history, historical relativism, messianic epistemology, messianic history, universal justice, theory of individuality, New Thinking, Star of Redemption
