Freedom and Law

Randi Rashkover

Fordham University Press

Chapter 5 offers a philosophical presentation of the logic of law first through an examination of Franz Rosenzweig's New Thinking as an extension of F.W.J. Schelling's theology of divine freedom. Schelling's theology introduces philosophically the link between divine freedom and law earlier introduced in the Biblical analysis of God. Rosenzweig's essay, “The New Thinking,” deepens the analysis of the nexus between divine freedom and divine law and articulates the impact of both on freedom of human action and knowledge of the world. This chapter shows therefore how the logic of the law introduces a paradigm shift in analyses of how human desire relates to power and the production of knowledge about the world.

Keywords:   new thinking, knowledge, desire, action, power, Franz Rosenzweig, F.W.J. Schelling
