Chapter Summary

It is important to draw attention to anti-Semitism positions because of the prestige intellectuals enjoy in France. Four essays published in the last decade were particularly enlightening and the discussion about them will be the core of this chapter. Although these intellectuals voiced their own positions, some of them were in a sense perceived as representatives of the Jewish community and speaking on its behalf. The chapter then deals with the community's attitude towards their opinions. All four writers describe the new features of this nascent anti-Semitism which all consider to be different and not an exception to the rule. This provided the theoretical and normative basis for defining it by a different concept, which is precisely what Taguieff argues in his work. Taguieff replaces the well- known concept of anti-Semitism with Judeophobia.
