The Philosopher, the Rabbi, and the Rhetorician
Handelman, Susan
College English, v72 n6 p590-607 Jul 2010
The author explores the topic of Jewish rhetorics by examining how particular Jewish thinkers have conceptualized the ethical relation between self and other. She draws particular attention to the tacit rhetorical methodology at work in the teachings of Rabbi Yehouda Leon Askenazi. She shows that he distinguished himself from the more well-known philosopher Emmanuel Levinas by calling for reciprocity between human beings, including within the relationship between giver and receiver. (Contains 13 notes.)
