Dr. David Hartman, who studied with Rabbi Soloveitchik for a decade, is one of the most respected theologians in the world today. He is the founder and director of the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem.
"A unique combination of love and criticism, depth and respect. This book is an invitation to experience Hartman's ongoing philosophical dialogue with his great teacher, and is an important contribution to understanding the thought of both these major figures." -Prof. Avi Sagi, director, Interdisciplinary Graduate Program in Hereneutics and Cultural Studies, Bar Ilan University "Compellingly demonstrates how R. Soloveitchik joined intellectual brilliance in Jewish learning with a deep empathy for modern existentialist philosophy. Undoubtedly, this work will become the standard for future scholarship on the majestic thought of R. Soloveitchick." -Prof. Yehuda (Jerome) Gellman, Department of Philosophy, Ben-Gurion University of Negev
