Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the formulation of philosophical categories in which the relations obtaining between Judaism and Christianity may be discussed in the contemporary world, while giving the historical issues laying at the root of such a discussion their due from a particularly Jewish perspective. It begins by surveying the manner in which major modern Jewish thinkers dealt with the question of relations between Judaism and Christianity in light of the tension obtaining between universalism and commonality, on the one hand, and the particular aspects of Jewish ethnicity vis-à-vis the Christian Culture of the West, on the other. Finally, the chapter makes a clear and concise comment as to the importance of taking into account the anomalous character of Jewish ethnicity vis-à-vis the universal character of interreligious dialogue in the present day.

Keywords: Christianity; commonality; interreligious dialogue; Jewish ethnicity; Judaism; modern Jewish thinkers; universalism
