The Place of Jewish Philosophy Place


Is there a coherence to Jewish Philosophy Place, which seems to ramble between and to get caught in so many competing topoi? Combining aesthetics, culture, politics, religion, technology, what is the place of Jewish Philosophy Place at this actualization?

From small to large, there are these 4 rough couplets that define the sense of place at Jewish Philosophy Place:



–Israel-Middle East



Perhaps Makom constitutes the plane of immanence along which emerge the first three couplets, more physical and actual in nature. Perhaps all four couplets subsist along or as a plane of immanence, pocked by transcendence, all four combining virtual and actual elements. Inclined towards a kind of metaphysics, I lean towards the former possibility, but am not ready to commit conceptually.
