About this product
- DescriptionIn the wake of the Dreyfus affair and the Shoah, many French intellectuals have maintained rich and complex relationships with Judaism, beyond as well as within the religious dimension. Whether they approach it via history, philosophy, biblical studies or sociology, or following a personal itinerary, many contemporary intellectuals are deeply involved in Jewish culture.Interviewed at length by Elisabeth Weber, this volume presents the meditations of seven well-kwn French thinkers on the special relations of their own intellectual pursuit to Judaism. As memory or as the place of circumfession (in Jacques Derrida's words), as the symbol of the unrepresentable (Jean-Francois Lyotard) or as the witness, according to Emmanuel Levinas, to a biblical humanity, Judaism is continually engaged in renewing and displacing contemporary thought.The volume includes interviews with: Pierre Vidal-Naquet, Jacques Derrida, Rita Thalmann, Emmanuel Levinas, Leon Poliakov, Jean-Francois Lyotard, and Luc Rosenzweig.
