The Lonely Man of Faith: My Perspective on the Role of Loneliness in Human Creativity
Late one night, as I sat hunched over a pile of books in the Gottesman library engaged in some fascinating research, a rare photograph caught my eye. The photograph, taken in , portrayed Rabbi Dr. Joseph B. The thought struck me that although I was highly knowledgeable about the life and legacy of Hacham Ovadia Yosef, I knew nothing at all about Rabbi Joseph Soloveitchik.
Soloveitchik , first published in the summer issue of Tradition , and published in a newly revised edition in by Koren Publishers Jerusalem. In The Lonely Man of Faith Soloveitchik reads the first two chapters of Book of Genesis as offering two images of Adam which are, in many ways, at odds with one another. The first Adam, or "majestic man," employs his creative faculties in order to master his environment as mandated by God; the second image of Adam is a distinctly different contractual man who surrenders himself to the will of God. Soloveitchik describes how the man of faith must integrate both of these ideas as he seeks to follow God's will. In the first chapter, Adam I is created together with Eve and they are given the mandate to subdue nature, master the cosmos, and transform the world "into a domain for their power and sovereignty. Adam I, created in the image of God, fulfills this apparently " secular " mandate by conquering the universe, imposing his knowledge, technology, and cultural institutions upon the world.
