Chapter Summary

The introductory chapter of the book covers a wide spectrum of Fackenheim's work and has been divided into sections covering biographical, philosophical, and theological aspects of Fackenheim's thought that have not been addressed adequately in the past. The first section, "Fackenheim Then and Now" is comprised of essays that provide a more comprehensive overview of Fackenheim's life and thought and of the contemporaneous historical factors that may have driven his thinking. The two sections are labeled "The Philosophical Dimension of Fackenheim's Thought" and "The Religious Dimension of Fackenheim's Thought" respectively. This chapter includes a number of essays which appraise Fackenheim's conception of theology and its impact on contemporary political Zionism. The essays reflect on Fackenheim as a teacher and guide to post-Holocaust Jews, recognize Fackenheim's work as a philosopher and address Fackenheim as a theologian.

Keywords: contemporary political Zionism; Fackenheim's work; philosopher; philosophical dimension; post-Holocaust Jews; religious dimension; theologian
