In Cohen, the foundation of morality is tightly linked to monotheistic religion. The two biblical expressions ‘with God’ and ‘before God’, which are often used and emphasized by Cohen, account for a relational experience that can be considered both a religious and a moral experience. By placing oneself in correlation with God and by acting accordingly, the moral self can be constituted. ‘Before God’, in particular, indicates a correlation within which one is called on to realize one’s autonomy. Before God, the individual as a moral rational being recognizes his autonomy and also sees it recognized and therefore has the possibility to become human.

Abstract

In Cohen, the foundation of morality is tightly linked to monotheistic religion. The two biblical expressions ‘with God’ and ‘before God’, which are often used and emphasized by Cohen, account for a relational experience that can be considered both a religious and a moral experience. By placing oneself in correlation with God and by acting accordingly, the moral self can be constituted. ‘Before God’, in particular, indicates a correlation within which one is called on to realize one’s autonomy. Before God, the individual as a moral rational being recognizes his autonomy and also sees it recognized and therefore has the possibility to become human.
