how these practices are deformed through being forced to carry (nearly) the full
weight of ethical existence and ideality, that is, how the intimate sphere is
deformed by becoming a refuge for ethical life in general. While the intimate
sphere has more or better possibilities for ethical existence than does public life,

generality with which they do not conform.”28 According to the analysis of post-
Enlightenment anti-Semitism by the Frankfurt School, for fascist and nationalist
forces, “the mere existence of the other is a provocation.”29 Accordingly Jews, as

mere existence to what the Frankfurt School identified as the “totality” of Western
