Emmanuel Lévinas est le philosophe de l. a. non-indifférence; il n’est en aucune sorte un philosophe indifférent. Son inquiétude personnelle et engagement politique ont trouvé une expression philosophique dans une quête � deux versants. Dans le versant ontologique, il cherche � montrer que même si l’homme est l’événement de compréhension de l’être, tout l’homme et toute signification ne se réduisent pas � los angeles compréhension de l’être seul.

In “Stories of Sacriﬁce: From Wellhausen to Girard,” John Milbank argues that Wellhausen constructed his theory of the original sacriﬁce not from evidence, but from his own liberal Lutheran preferences for private religion and a centralizing divinely ordained (political) state (SS 20). Echoing Detienne’s thesis that the vocation of sacriﬁce is to fulﬁll the major social function of mobilizing mental and moral energies (PCES 33/CPSS 19), Milbank writes, “Before the sociologists, Wellhausen ‘retrieved’ sacriﬁce as the ‘highest’ religious truth of surrender of the individual to the (political) community” (SS 20).
Another reason to perhaps relegate the category of “sacriﬁce” to the status of a contemporary anachronism is the persistently pervasive sexism in theories of sacriﬁce. In Throughout Your Generations Forever: Sacriﬁce, Religion, and Paternity, Nancy Jay writes, “Theories of sacriﬁce commonly exhibit notions of gender ranging from taken-for-granted male domination to explicit misogyny” (TYGF 128). Jay’s work reveals an afﬁnity between sacriﬁce and patriliny unacknowledged in most theories of sacriﬁce.
That the manufacturing process of making the Eucharistic wafer from ﬂour paste was often technically similar to making coins from metal ingots allowed thinkers like Nicholas of Cusa in ﬁfteenth-century Germany to observe how the Eucharistic wafer’s symbolic representation of the body of Jesus—or its actually being the body— has a numismatically iconic character. (AM 15) 11 The Question of Sacriﬁce This association of the sacriﬁce of the Eucharist with money serves as a reminder that an economy of sacriﬁce is at the heart of the predominant doctrine of sacriﬁce.
