Atheism and Depth of Being. A Brief Exchange of Letters between Furio Jesi and Gershom Scholem
Keywords:Mysticism, Atheism, Kabbalah, Judaism
AbstractThrough a comment of the correspondence between Furio Jesi and Gershom Sholem, the author explores the tension between atheism and Judaism that, according to the same Jesi, characterized his own research. His studies on the myth and the mystique and the mediation of Scholem did not only allow Jesi to get on top of his own biography of "half Jew". Being nameless and hidden, the God of the Jews seems also to legitimize and justify Jesi's attempt to develop his research on religious beliefs without assuming the existence of a god.
