Jacques Lacan recognizes in the Jewish traditon an early manifestation of a discourse that gives due of the alterity of language. The central thesis of Lacan’s thought is that language itself is of the order of the Other. What does this imply for our thinking on God? God is not the One you think He is. This is not a very new, postmodern view on religion. It is the purpose of this contribution to make such a claim valuable and plausible by relying on the thought of Jacques Lacan alongside some Talmudic readings of Emmanuel Levinas.
