    Ethics Responsibility Dialogue The Meaning of Dialogue in Lévinas's Philosophy.Hanoch Ben-Pazi - 2016 - Journal of Philosophy of Education 50 (4):619-638.
    This article examines the concept of dialogue in the philosophy of Emmanuel Lévinas, with a focus on the context of education. Its aim is to create a conversation between the Lévinasian theory and the theories of other philosophers, especially Martin Buber, in an effort to highlight the ethical significance that Lévinas assigns to the act of dialogue itself. As a philosopher whose essential interest was trained on the infinite ethical responsibility of the human subject, Lévinas places major emphasis on the (...)

    The Philosophical Meaning of the Names of God.Hanoch Ben-Pazi - 2006 - Revue Internationale de Philosophie 1:115-135.
    Levinas’ thought concerning God continues the philosophical discussion – how to speak about the divine within human language. His thought takes into account Heidegger’s Ontology and Rosenzweig’s exploration of revelation and the meaning of Divinity. Levinas sees the meaning of God’s names as an ethical commandment toward the Beyond – toward the other person. By using the Talmudic writings, Levinas describes the custom of Jewish wisdom to talk about God’s names and attributes as referring the subject towards other persons. As (...)

    Eros Within the Limits of Mere Reason: On the Maimonidean Limits of Modern Jewish Philosophy.Hanoch Ben-Pazi - 2009 - In James T. Robinson (ed.), The Cultures of Maimonideanism: New Approaches to the History of Jewish Thought. Brill. pp. 9--335.
    One of the riddles that enthrall those who study modern Jewish thought is how Maimonides attained such high stature among thinkers so far removed from one another – medievals and moderns, rationalists and mystics. One may fairly say that Maimonides was the religious and philosophical anchor for a stunning variety of thinkers, but it appears that more than they seek to understand Maimonides’ views, they find in him an ethical and religious model that enables them to create and formulate their (...)

    Messianism’s Contribution to Political Philosophy: Peace and War in Levinas’s Totality and Infinity.Hanoch Ben-Pazi - 2017 - International Journal for Philosophy of Religion 81 (3):291-313.
    This article examines the impact of messianic thought on political philosophy in the theory of philosopher Emmanuel Levinas. Levinas’s work enables us to consider the political not only in terms of contemplation of the tension between the political and the ethical and of the ethical limits of politics but as an attempt to create ethical political thought. Discussion of the tension between the political and the ethical intensifies in wartime and in the context of militaristic thinking. At the same time, (...)

    R. Abraham Isaac Kook and the Opening Passage of “The War”.Hanoch Ben-Pazi - 2017 - Journal of Jewish Thought and Philosophy 25 (2):256-278.
    _ Source: _Volume 25, Issue 2, pp 256 - 278 Rabbi Abraham Isaac Ha-Cohen Kook’s essay “The War” is a text of immense importance with respect to the development of ideological militaristic writing in religious Zionism. The essay was first published in the book _Orot me-Ofel_, edited by R. Kook’s son, Rabbi Zvi Yehudah Kook. In this study, I wish to distinguish the views presented in the notebooks and collected writings of R. Kook from his position as set forth in (...)

  6. The Immense House of Postcards.Hanoch Ben-Pazi - 2016 - Forum Philosophicum: International Journal for Philosophy 21 (1):43-71.
    The subject of tradition engaged both Emmanuel Lévinas and Jacques Derrida in many of their writings, which explore both the philosophical and cultural significance of tradition and the particular significance of the latter in a specifically Jewish context. Lévinas devoted a few of his Talmudic essays to the subject, and Derrida addressed the issue from the perspective of different philosophical and religious traditions. This article uses the writings of these two thinkers to propose a new way of thinking about the (...)

  7. Levinas Faces Biblical Figures.Ephraim Meir, Edna Langenthal, Gary D. Mole, Elisabeth Goldwyn, Catherine Chalier, Eli Schonfeld, Michal Ben-Naftali, Richard A. Cohen, Hanoch Ben-Pazi & Tamar Abramov (eds.) - 2014 - Lexington Books.
    Levinas Faces Biblical Figures captures the drama of the encounter between a great philosopher and a text of primary importance. The book considers the ways in which Levinas's thoughts can open up the biblical text to requestioning, and how the biblical text can inform our reading of Levinas.
