The third of a three-volume series, this book contains Eva Jospe's Reason and Hope: Selections from the Jewish Writings of Hermann Cohen, together with two essays examining Cohen's continuing importance and relevance. As Dov Schwartz suggests in his introduction to the volume, Jospe believed that Cohen's Jewish Writings had the potential for influence and impact on the American Jewish intellectual, and would enrich the ethical and religious life of the Jewish community in America. Her selection of passages to translate, as well as her decisions regarding what to omit, served these purposes. Volume One of this series contains Jospe's study of the “Concept of Encounter in the Philosophy of Martin Buber,” and Volume Two her translations of Moses Mendelssohn. Together, these volumes offer a multidimensional view of Jospe's work and thoughts.
