The chapter analyses the modern political notion of the “Jews,” and the role of that notion in both political ontology and political theology versions of the political. The key notion of the effacement of the political in political theology and political ontology develops further in the argument in the chapter. The political becomes “effaced” that is both dynamically articulated and lost in political ontology and political theology. The chapter introduces the role of a Talmudic notion of refuting as opposed to both Greek (Aristotelian) and Latin (Quintilian) notions of refutation; and spells out how that notion of refuting emerges, by the paradoxical logic of effacement, in the analysis of the political in the Talmud. The argument advances in conversation with Hannah Arendt, Jean-François Lyotard, and Pavel Florensky.
