Description du produit
Présentation de l'éditeur
Best known for his theories of ethics and responsibility, Emmanuel Levinas was one of the most profound and influential thinkers of the last century. In this clear, accessible guide, Seán Hand examines why Levinas is increasingly fundamental to the study of literature and culture today. Exploring the intellectual and social contexts of his work and the events that shaped it, Hand considers:
- the influence of phenomenology and Judaism on Levinas’s thought
- key concepts such as the ‘face’, the ‘other’, ethical consciousness and responsibility
- Levinas’s work on aesthetics
- the relationship of philosophy and religion in his writings
- the interaction of his work with historical discussions
- his often complex relationships with other theorists and theories
Emmanuel Levinas’s unique contribution to theory set an exemplary standard for all subsequent thought. This outstanding guide to his work will prove invaluable to scholars and students across a wide range of disciplines - from philosophy and literary criticism through to international relations and the creative arts.

Once you get past the amateurish look of the book, what you do find is a clear, clever, concise, and cogent account of Levinas's central ideas. This introduction to Levinas is particularly useful for a number of reasons. First, it considers Levinas's philosophical and Talmudic works and their interconnection. Second, Hand identifies the ethical significance of Levinas's understanding of art. Third, in the last chapter, Hand considers Levinas's place in contemporary philosophy by identifying a few "critical" thinkers who have offered interesting ways of approaching Levinas's philosophy: Jacques Derrida, Jean-Luc Marion, Tina Chanter, Alain Badiou, Judith Butler, and Slavoj Zizek. This book is a positive contribution to Levinas scholarship and serves as a handy guidebook that even Levinas's seasoned readers will enjoy and learn from.
