Continental philosophers are much more likely to approve of apophaticism than analytic philosophers are. Apophaticism is keenly aware of the limits of reason. Apophaticism often characterizes logic and language as inherently human afairs. These traits fit naturally with a number of continental philosophical trends; trends that question the omnipotence and species-neutrality of logic.¹ This chapter, however, seeks to defend Jewish apophaticism to philosophers in theanalytictradition. A much harder sell!
