Essays on Carl Schmitt, Gershom Scholem and Herman Cohen. The book describes the transformation of discourse in cultural studies, a discourse which after its inception around the turn of the century was also designed to salvage German-Jewish interculturality. This transformation manifests itself in a discourse on political theology (involving Carl Schmitt and Gershom Scholem) through which the disastrous dissociation of the two cultures took its final and irrevocable course.
