Example text

I found a n unanticipated source of help i n responding t o this question in Franz Rosenzweig's Star of Redemption. It may be recalled that this work, which itself is far from the commonplace, is divided into three sections, corresponding respectively to the idea of creation (or the eternal before), revelation (or the eternal present of encounter), and redemption (or the eternal not yet of messianic expectation). Coming to the second section, revelation, the reader may expect to be instructed concerning the Torah, and in a sense this is what happens, but the Torah, at this stage of Rosenzweig's meditation, is not yet a set of rules.

This is the question which will guide us in the following. 2 Jean Nabert The philosopher who made possible Ricoeur's approach to Heidegger is certainly Jean Nabert, who published the book Elements pour une Ethique in 1 943. 5 Like Jaspers, Nabert reflects on defeat, fault and solitude, but he does not oppose these negative phenomena to a Transcendence which overcomes them. On the contrary, he shows that by thinking an existential negation to its end, one is brought to an affirmation of existence which he calls 'original affirmation'.

We have also to take into consideration the idea or ideal of justice, whose borderline with love is less easy to trace. Nevertheless, taken even at the quasi-reflective level of social practice, justice can be opposed to love in terms of some well-marked features that will bring us to the threshold of our reflections devoted to the dialectic between love and justice. These distinctive features result from the almost complete identifi­ cation of justice with distributive justice. This has been the case from Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics right up to John Rawls's A Theory of Justice, and it is the significance of this identification that we now have to considerY It presupposes that we give the idea of distribution an amplitude that surpasses the realm of economics.
