Rabbi Yosef Rosen, the Rogatchover Gaon, was one of the greatest Talmudic scholars in recent memory. He was a seminal figure in the 20th century project of conceptualizing and systemizing Talmud and Halakha. He was perhaps the most abstract and philosophical Talmudist and Posek, ever to have lived. He merged classical Talmudic thought with Philosophy, Metaphysics, Political theory and more. He represents an alternative school to the Brisker method which has dominated Yeshivot to the present day. One of the most integrated rabbinic thinkers, his works have remained obscure and inaccessible due to their cryptic nature. This is the first attempt to present this giant revolutionary scholar and his writings to the English-speaking public.

"Your [article] was most enlightening" - Professor David Nimmer, Professor at UCLA Law School and Member of the American Law Institute.
"R.Yosef Rosen (the Rogatchover Gaon) was one of the towering figures of the early twentieth century revolution in conceptual Talmud study. Yet his challenging works are hardly known to the general public. R. Dovber Schwartz has now rendered this vast and deep corpus accessible, in clear, contemporary language, yet based on thorough and profound learning and for the first time in English! Both seasoned scholars and beginners will derive much benefit and enjoyment from this book"
--Prof. Jonathan Garb, Gershom Scholem Professor of Kabbalah Hebrew University
"This excellent book by Rabbi DovBer Schwartz, provides the English reader--in a superbly written fashion--with a glimpse of the brilliance of the Rogatchover in many different areas of halacha and hashkafa. It is well worth reading, and anyone who invests in studying this excellent work will gain enormously from it. The book clearly explains both the specific topics reviewed and the general methodology employed. The author is to be commended for engaging his subject so well."
--Rabbi Michael J. Broyde, Professor of Law, Emory University School of Law
"This volume brings together many anecdotes and intellectual high- lights relating to the Rogatchover, the remarkable talmudic prodi- gy whose work fascinated so many of his successors, particularly in the Hasidic world, including the last Lubavitcher Rebbe."
--Shalom Carmy, Chair of Bible and Jewish Philosophy Yeshiva University
"This book about the Rogatchover gaon bridges the gap between the legend and the man only to find out that the man exceeds the legend." -Reuven Kimelman
Professor of Classical Judaica
