Taken separately, the terms -cultural- and -dialectic- each open onto a vast panorama of different - and sometimes competing - significances. Dialectic is understood to represent not the Western philosophical tradition of duality as opposites, but rather the Judaic dialectic, or pilpul, which describes a complementary webbing of consciousness and centerlessness.

Lewisohns and Ozicks works are viewed as unique examples of a complex mesh of Judaic, Western, European, American, and Gentile cultural determinants. A slippery confluence of contrasting characteristics, these writings are both autobiographically non-fictional and fictional- factually true, but also invented.
