Franz Rosenzweig

There's a photo of Franz Rosenzweig ((1886–1929) cut in the shape of the Star of David on the cover of his book The Star of Redemption (ISBN 0-299-20720-X).
There's another on the cover of the first edition of this book published on 1921 (in German).
In this book Franz Rosenzweig builds his philosophy around the shape of the Star of David, composed of two conceptual triangles which together form the basis of Jewish belief: Creation, Revelation, and Redemption; God, Israel, and World.
