    The Marriage of Time and Identity: Kant, Benjamin and the Nation-State.Eyal Chowers - 1999 - Philosophy and Social Criticism 25 (3):57-80.
    The paper explores the role played by concepts of temporality in shaping the self's identity and its moral responsibility. This theme is examined in both Kant and Benjamin, two theorists who view the modern self as an essentially historical being. For Kant, teleological and uniform time shoulders the heightening of the self's universal attributes and the constant expansion of a moral community. The desired end is the establishment of an integrated and homogeneous human space, a cosmopolitan stage wherein history is (...)

    Narrating the Modern’s Subjection: Freud’s Theory of the Oedipal Complex.Eyal Chowers - 2000 - History of the Human Sciences 13 (3):23-45.

  6. The Political Philosophy of Zionism: Trading Jewish Words for a Hebraic Land.Eyal Chowers - 2012 - Cambridge University Press.
    Zionism emerged at the end of the nineteenth century in response to a rise in anti-Semitism in Europe and to the crisis of modern Jewish identity. This novel, national revolution aimed to unite a scattered community, defined mainly by shared texts and literary tradition, into a vibrant political entity destined for the Holy Land. However, Zionism was about much more than a national political ideology and practice. By tracing its origins in the context of a European history of ideas and (...)
