Jewish Messianism and the History of Philosophy contests the ancient opposition between Athens and Jerusalem by retrieving the concept of meontology.


Introduction: From Athens to Jerusalem; 1. The meontological conundrum: Emmanuel Levinas and Emil Fackenheim on the Athens-Jerusalem conflict; 2. Beyond 'beyond being': nonbeing in Plato and Husserl; 3. Nonbeing as not-yet-being: meontology in Maimonides and Hermann Cohen; 4. Nonbeing ensouled, nonbeing embodied: Levinas versus Rosenzweig on the role of the other in messianic anticipation; Conclusion: Deepening the roots of the Jewish meontological tradition or contra the Derridian 'Messianic'; Works cited; Index.


'Martin Kavka's Jewish Messianism and the History of Philosophy combines an extraordinary breadth and depth of scholarship with a degree of living thinking and ethical passion that is indeed rare and wonderful. It is framed as a love letter, an invitation to conversation, addressed to a friend, a Rabbi, and to us, his readers. It is an invitation that I take personally.'
