Kabbalah and the Coincidence of Opposites

(p.122) Chapter 11 Beyond Dualism
Another Modernity

Clémence Boulouque

Stanford University Press

Chapter 11 is devoted to Benamozegh’s presentation of Kabbalah as a vehicle for understanding and achieving religious unity and progress. His use of kabbalistic hermeneutics, predicated on the key concepts of coincidence of opposites, of berur (clarification) and of illuy (elevation), aimed (a) to suspend commonly held binaries such as science and faith, East and West, worldliness and transcendence, and (b) to prove Kabbalah’s affinity with nineteenth-century conceptions of assimilation and of progress.

Keywords:   progress, assimilation, coincidence of opposites, berur, illuy
