Directing his attention to the relationship between Israel and the Diaspora, Rotenstreich argues that the brute facts of contemporary Jewish existence in the 1970s render problematic the time-worn metaphor of Israel's "centrality." From the cultural point of view, he explains, it is not clear that Israel is the center of the Jewish world, and in any case it has not become the ideal "spiritual center" envisioned by Aḥad Ha-Am Aquinas on Matter and Form and the Elements: A Translation and Interpretation of the DE PRINCIPIIS NATURAE and the DE MIXTIONE ELEMENTORUM of St. Thomas Aquinas.

The common opinion on coercive government and slavery was expressed by Augustine. God “did not intend that …[man] should have lordship over any but irrational creatures: not man over man, but man over the beasts. Hence, the first just men were established as shepherds of flocks, rather than as kings of men” (City of God, XIX .15, p. 942).[ 8 ] He goes on to say that slavery is a just punishment for sin, and that servi are so called because “those who might [justly] have been slain under the laws of war were sometimes spared” [servabantur] Averroes: His Life, Work and Influence (Great Islamic Writings).
