This chapter examines Jewish thought in the context of Margarete Susman's The Book of Job and the Destiny of the Jewish People. It suggests that in this book Susman attempted to advance a philosophically captivating argument for the return to the biblical legacy of Jewish tradition for the purpose of a postmetaphysical philosophy. She also argued that Jewish tradition offers a philosophically illuminating model to address the modern predicament of the catastrophic loss of all the truths, a loss that seems to have defined our experience of the world and universe.

Keywords:   Book of Job, Margarete Susman, Jewish thought, Jewish tradition, postmetaphysical philosophy, truths
