Three Understandings of the Sefirot: A classic example of the Tzemach Tzedek’s synthetic approach to Kabbalah and Jewish thought

In the classic discourse known as "Derush Shalosh Shitot" the Tzemach Tzedek synthesizes three different interpretations of the sefirot and their relationship to the divine essence, as quoted in the thought of Rabbi Shneur Zalman: The sefirot as tools, as divine essence, and as divine names.
