(p.151) Chapter 13 Religious Enmity and Tolerance Reconsidered
Another Modernity

Clémence Boulouque

Stanford University Press

Chapter 13 examines Benamozegh’s theoretical constructs, by which he tried to neutralize the notion of religious enmity—a category, he argued, that was created by Christianity and which was bound to foster ontological hostility. In his quest for religious coexistence, he emphasized the concept of interdependence and rejected that of tolerance, which he viewed as an insufficient proposition; it was but a variation on pragmatism or utilitarianism. The chapter also probes Benamozegh’s Jewish theology of other religions, and its universalism predicated on the unifying quality of Judaism, against the typology of pluralism and inclusivism.

Keywords:   enmity, tolerance, interdependence, pluralism, inclusivism
