The Levinas reader by Emmanuel Lévinas( Book )

29 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 607 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Emmanuel Levinas has been Professor of Philosophy at the Sorbonne and the director of the Ecole Normale Israelite Orientale. Through such works as "Totality and Infinity" and "Otherwise than Being", he has exerted a profound influence on twentieth-century continental philosophy, providing inspiration for Derrida, Lyotard, Blanchot and Irigaray. "The Levinas Reader" collects, often for the first time in English, essays by Levinas encompassing every aspect of his thought: the early phenomenological studies written under the guidance and inspiration of Husserl and Heidegger; the fully developed ethical critique of such totalizing philosophies; the pioneering texts on the moral dimension to aesthetics; the rich and subtle readings of the Talmud which are an exemplary model of an ethical, transcendental philosophy at work; the admirable meditations on current political issues. Sean Hand's introduction gives a complete overview of Levinas's work and situates each chapter within his general contribution to phenomenology, aesthetics, religion, politics and, above all, ethics. Each essay has been prefaced with a brief introduction presenting the basic issues and the necessary background, and suggesting ways to study the text further. -- Back cover
Michel Leiris : writing the self by Seán Hand( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

He goes on to argue that Leiris's multi-volume autobiography La Regle du jeu stands as the model form of self-enquiry in the twentieth century. More broadly, Hand explores Leiris's continuing obsession with the notion of 'presence'. Informed by recent critical theories, Hand offers a multi-disciplinary approach to this intriguing writer."--Jacket

Study of one of the key philosophers in the post-Heideggerian field and an increasingly central presence in contemporary debates about identity and responsibility
Post-Holocaust France and the Jews, 1945-1955 by Steven T Katz( Book )

7 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Despite an outpouring of scholarship on the Holocaust, little work has focused on what happened to Europe's Jewish communities after the war ended. And unlike many other European nations in which the majority of the Jewish population perished, France had a significant post war Jewish community that numbered in the hundreds of thousands. Post-Holocaust France and the Jews, 1945-1955 offers new insight on key aspects of French Jewish life in the decades following the end of World War II. How Jews had been treated during the war continued to influence both Jewish and non-Jewish society in the post-war years. The volume examines the ways in which moral and political issues of responsibility combined with the urgent problems and practicalities of restoration, and it illustrates how national imperatives, international dynamics, and a changed self-perception all profoundly helped to shape the fortunes of postwar French Judaism. Comprehensive and informed, this volume offers a rich variety of perspectives on Jewish studies, modern and contemporary history, literary and cultural analysis, philosophy, sociology, and theology. With contributions from leading scholars, including Edward Kaplan, Susan Rubin Suleiman, and Jay Winter, the book establishes multiple connections between such different areas of concern as the running of orphanages, the establishment of new social and political organisations, the restoration of teaching and religious facilities, and the development of intellectual responses to the Holocaust." -- Publisher's description
Alter ego : the critical writings of Michel Leiris by Seán Hand( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 135 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nietzsche, the body and culture : philosophy as a philological genealogy by Eric Blondel( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"First published in France in 1987, this book provides a definitive account of how to read and interpret Nietzsche, given that it is the work of Nietzsche himself that has so fundamentally changed our understanding of what 'reading' and 'interpreting' mean. The book's title points to the two central questions raised by Nietzsche: how culture is formed and how culture forms us; and the extent to which we are more body than spirit."--Bloomsbury Publishing
