In this article, I comment on responses to my Presidential Address offered by HyeRan Kim-Cragg and Hosffman Ospino. While I take on board their call to diversify the references on defending pedagogies of difference and hope, I caution against judging arguments on the grounds of the origins of their authors. Neither Enlightenment nor Counter-Enlightenment thought can provide a defensible basis for this dialogical pedagogy, I argue. So, we need a new start grounded in authors who eschew comprehensive universal views that marginalize particular groups such as the historic otherization of Jew and Judaism.
