The Journal of Jewish Thought and Philosophy , 2002, Vol. 11, No. 1, pp. 63–73 Aesthetics in Religion: Remarks on Hermann Cohen’s Theory of Jewish Existence 1 Hartwig Wiedebach * Moses Mendelssohn Center for European Jewish Studies, Potsdam My focus is here to connect Hermann Cohen’s Aesthetics of the Pure Feeling 2 with his philosophy of religion. In his ‘‘Introduction’’ to Cohen’s Jewish Writings , Franz Rosenzweig was the first to note the strong aesthetic impact on Cohen’s last writings. Rosenzweig believes that after having written his Ethics of the Pure Will , Cohen wanted to reveal in his Aesthetics all the surplus material and thought for which there was no place in his Ethics . 3 So he was constrained to write his book on aesthetics, and to make this ‘‘experiment in thought’’ before he could be sure that there was indeed a surplus of reflection which he had been unable to subsume within his System of Philosophy . 4 But the discovery of this ‘post-aesthetical’ surplus does not imply that religious thought will disclose totally new matters for inquiry. As has often been pointed out with respect to Cohen’s ethics, we must also assume close links
