“God,” Gods, God

Show Summary Details


This chapter argues that both secular and theological approaches to ethics are flawed because they are thematizations of that which cannot be articulated in itself in language (God, the neighbor, history, etc.). Yet instead of authorizing cultural pessimism, this leads only to a critique.

Keywords: Edith Wyschogrod; ethics; God; pessimism; critique
