Universalism in Particularism

Benamozegh’s Legacies, between Levinas and Religious Zionism

(p.102) Chapter 9 Universalism in Particularism
Another Modernity

Clémence Boulouque

Stanford University Press

Chapter 9 demonstrates that the notion of Jewish universalism through particularism is one of Benamozegh’s notable contributions, which he predicated on Noahism but also on the role of the nations in Judaism. The French philosopher Levinas is often credited with this concept, which he furthered when he posited a “universalist particularism,” an inclusivism that has nevertheless lent itself to conflicting legacies. This chapter probes the tenets of Benamozegh’s system and the turn to an ethnocentric reading of Jewish particularism by thinkers such as Léon Askénazi, Rabbi Zvi Yehuda Kook, and the religious-Zionist movement in contemporary Israel.

Keywords:   Emmanuel Levinas, Léon Askénazi, Zvi Yehuda Kook, religious Zionism, particularism
