About this product
- DescriptionIn The Pale God , Katz deals with the relationship between secularism and religious tradition. Katz begins with a description of the secular options as expressed by Israeli intellectuals, which he claims have led to a dead-end, and that new options must be sought. One of the key sources for this option is the works of Spiza, which Katz explains is unlike Nietzsche's catchphrase 'the death of God'. In his view, Spiza tried to undermine the authority of religious virtuosos and establish the image of a rational Pale God . Such changes could channel religious tradition to the basic principles of secular political rule. Katz then sums up his discussion by showing that the secular option is inherent in Israeli society, and fits the type of secularism that Zionism instilled in the Jewish people and complements the traditional trends already deeply rooted there.
