About the Author:

Review:

...a fascinating contribution....Gellman uses Kiekegaard's parallel treatment of this text to shed light on an important, but little known, tradition of Hasidic thought. (Ronald M. Green, Dartmouth College)

This short book is eminently worth reading. The topic is important; the writing is clear and crisp; the author objective while engaged; and the content organized, informed and informative. (Ronald M. Green, Dartmouth College Journal of Jewish Studies)

...it is very clearly written...Gellman never loses sight of the philosophical concerns, and his rabbinic sources are shown to be rich in insight and argument...Teachers seeking a fresh, innovative text for a course on Religion and Morality might find...[it to be] just what they are looking for. (John Kleinig, professor of philosophy, John Jay College of Criminal Justice)
