Chapter Summary

This section presents the life and works of Hans Jonas that occur in this book titled The legacy of Hans Jonas: Judaism and the phenomenon of life . One of the distinguishing features of Hans Jonas is his combination of philosophy, religion, politics, science, and technology in insightful thought and noble action. In the 1940s Jonas began to reflect on the philosophical problems of modern science, especially biology. More profoundly than Maurice Merleau-Ponty, who sought to bring the lived body within the scope of phenomenological reflection, Jonas confronted the failure of phenomenology to incorporate an understanding of the unique being of plants and animals.

Keywords: Hans Jonas; judaism; modern science; politics
