Sample text

The dialectic of these two realms echoes the earlier dialectic. 16 Allowing this dialectical tension to remain unsynthesized is a pathmark in Jewish Thinking, especially within its mystical branches, that will recur throughout the present investigation. Adrift in Bands and Restoration: Halakhah and Aggadah Reconsidered Regarding this tension between World of Bands [Olam ha-Akudim] and World of Restoration [Olam ha-Tikkun], much insight is to be gleaned from a tangential remark of French Jewish thinker Emmanuel Lévinas (1906–1995).

The dialectal tension that Adorno resuscitates in his metaphysical atheism is both alarming and reassuring. Alarming, because it leaves us seemingly unmoored, but reassuring because it dares to speak the truth. When Adorno decries that “Whoever believes in God, therefore cannot believe in God,” the thinker is confronting the reality that after Auschwitz, any pretense at continuing the same metaphysical speculations removed from experience is inauthentic. ”19 By daring to proffer a metaphysical atheism after such deicide, Adorno is opening a negative dialectic par excellence to explore anew the possibility of thinking, saying, and even praying after Auschwitz.

56 An earlier pre-Christian aroma of presencing that arises out of, and presents itself within, the intrinsically Jewish theological overflow, here returns from within the ontological realm. However, the site of this return that presences is now within a poetic thinking. The development of Heidegger’s thinking from the time of this early essay betrays the growing inadequacy of the categories of Philosophy and Religion in general, as well as Phenomenology and Theology in particular. This shift or sharp turn [Kehre] in his thinking toward poetics is most apparent in hybrid works that attempt to unearth the poetic within thinking.
