The article presents philosopher Franz Rosenzweig's views on his contemporary philosopher Hermann Cohen's book "Logic of Pure Cognition." According to Rosenzweig, it is a bit tough to understand Cohen's philosophy. Hermann Cohen was the first to discover in mathematics an organon of thought. It is quite evident that Cohen's book "Logic of Pure Cognition"--in an intensive interaction with his book "Religion of Reason"--was for Rosenzweig a kind of first spark, a generator for jump-starting work on his own book "The Star of Redemption."
