This chapter analyzes the debate on the existence of Jewish philosophy. It suggests that the most important motives of its course of argumentation remain grounded in the specificity of the context from which they arise and contends that arguments for or against the existence of a category of Jewish philosophy can run to the intention of the debate. This chapter also argues that the discourse on what Jewish philosophy is highlights philosophy's own problematic stand when it comes to the task of examining its own premises.

Keywords:   Jewish philosophy, debate, argumentation, discourse, philosophical category
