Leí "Estrellas amarillas" poco después de estudiar filosofía, tras un período de cierto desencanto y escepticismo. Este libro realmente logró despertar nuevamente mi pasión por la filosofía y el deseo de empezar nuevamente a leer y estudiar con toda seriedad, como Edith Stein, en definitiva.

Interesting book, but more focused on her intellectual accomplishment than I wanted to read about. She spends entirely too much time talking about her intellectual and social pursuits, but there is a great deal of value in connecting the dots of whom she knew back in Germany. I for example, had not realized that of course, she would have been well aquainted with Dietriech Von Hoeffer..........., who abviously continues to affect the phenomenological approach.....

Muy interesante para conocer sus raíces, su tradición familiar. Un gran contexto para comprender ese "vayamos a morir por nuestro pueblo!" Con el que animaba a su hermana cuando las sacaron del convento para conducirlas al campo de exterminio.

Edith Stein was an incredible woman. Her drive to learn, think critically and apply what she learned is impressive. The freedoms her mother allowed her surprised me.

She throws out so many references to people and historical events that I felt overwhelmed and undereducated.
