“Aher a arraché les jeunes pousses du paradis” : Elisha ben Abouyah, une figure de l’autre dans la littérature rabbinique ancienne

Abstract : The Talmudic figure of the apostate Aḥer (« the other », nickname given to the former rabbi Elisha ben Abuyah) has been used, inter al., for illustrating some complex theological questions discussed in ancient rabbinic Judaism. Such matters as monotheism, man’s freedom confronted with divine providence, unlimited ability of divine forgiveness etc. In these discussions Aḥer often represents the kind of « free-speech » that Michel Foucault called parrêsia.
