Schwartz (interdisciplinary studies, Bar Ilan U., Israel) makes a thorough, careful and interesting review of the thought of Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik's philosophy. He begins with the period from 1945 to 1965, considered the first and second stages of Soloveitchik's thought in a systematic and detailed discussion of his early work, specifically And From There You Shall Seek and "The Lonely Man of Faith." He then examines consciousness, existence, reason and its limitations, the concept of revelation in And From There You Shall Seek, consciousness and mercy, consciousness of the deity, the mechanisms of conjunction, the negation of metaphysics, the finitude of suffering, and dialogue and faith in "The Lonely Man of Faith." This is a beautifully-written examination of one man's intellectual journey. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
