Authoritatively and comprehensively provides the intellectual context for Wyschogrod's scholarly life's work. - Victor E. Taylor, author of Religion after Postmodernism: Retheorizing Myth and Literature


Essays that both examine and extend the work of the American scholar (1930-2009). --The Chronicle of Higher Education Essays that both examine and extend the work of the American scholar (1930-2009). Committed to the contours of postmodernism, Edith Wyschogrod is perhaps the most important expositor of (re)constructing ethics in light of the uncertainties of the present age. These essays, authored by colleagues and students who have emerged as important scholars in their respective fields, exhibit the profound influence she has had in philosophy, Jewish and Christian theology, religion, mysticism, and history. Her rigor, insight, creativity, and generosity jump from the pages of these essays and her response. This collection is a testament to one of our most cherished and beloved teachers.-Shaul Magid A fine set of essays that fittingly pay tribute to the saintly influence ofEdith Wyschogrod.-Bruce Ellis Benson
