Because this study focuses on questions of communication and miscommunication, the present section seeks to clarify some potentially misleading aspects of Cohen’s terminology. Cohen uses certain key words in very specific ways; in many cases, his use differs significantly from typical associations with and understandings of those same words. While Cohen’s employment of these terms will be explicated in further detail in the main body of the book, this section provides an initial sketch, particularly in order to make clear what Cohen does not mean. In addition, because this book attempts, in its own commentary and assessment, to follow Cohen’s usage, such clarification will also help prevent misconstruals of its own claims. The following terms are therefore highlighted and addressed ahead of time: philosophy, reason, objective, ethics, ethicality, ethical, religion, Judaism.

Keywords:   terminology, philosophy, reason, objective, ethics, ethicality, ethical, religion, Judaism
