Dr. Daniel Rynhold, professor in modern Jewish philosophy at the Bernard Revel Graduate School of Jewish Studies, director of the Revel doctoral program and director of the Schottenstein Honors Program at Yeshiva College, discusses Nietzsche, Soloveitchik, and Contemporary Jewish Philosophy, co-written with Michael J. Harris, with Rabb Dr. Stu Halpern, senior adviser to the provost. In their discussion, Dr. Rynhold touches upon how Rabbi Jospeh Soloveitchik's effort to find the meaning of faith in the world was sharpened by having to confront Friedrich Nietzsche's savage critique of Christian theology. Though coming from opposed points of view, both men were committed to finding out how to craft a life that had meaning and value.
