Journal of Jewish Thought and Philosophy 14 (1):131-151 (2006)
The paper uses a comparison of Levinas and Adorno to raise certain questions about the former's thought. Both thinkers utilize Jewish experience as a trope for what eludes systematic conceptualization : the universalization and varying degrees of abstraction required to make this move form the content of the paper's central analysis. However, this analysis is framed in a wider argument about the way in which Levinas is an innovative thinker, the problems this innovation raises for the question of the eternal relevance of his ideas, and the influence a unique aspect of his thought has had on contemporary philosophers who seek to update him
