Emmanuel Levinas is one of the most original philosophers in the twentieth century. In this book, continuing his thought on obligation, he investigates the possibility that the word God can be understood now, at the end of the twentieth century, in a meaningful way. The thirteen essays collected in this volume offer an introduction to the wide range of Levinas's thought, addresses philosophical questions concerning politics, language and religion and the philosophies of, amongst others, Heidegger, Kierkegaard, Marx and Derrida. The essays also touch on the Marxist concept of ideology, death, hermeneutics, the concept of evil, the philosophy of dialogue, the relation of language to the Other, and the acts of communication and mutual understanding. Nine of the essays appear in English for the first time

Il testo che viene qui presentato, riproduce lo stenogramma di quattro conferenze che, sotto il titolo di "Le Temps et l'Autre" furono tenute da Levinas nel 1946-47 durante il primo anno della sua attività al Collège Philosophique fondato da Jean Wahl. Si tratta di una vera e propria cellula germinale e originaria che già contiene, in nuce, i temi fondamentali della maturità teoretica dell'autore. Prima sintesi filosofica, l'opera permette cosi di cogliere il pensiero di Levinas nell'originalità e nella freschezza del suo stato nascente
God, death, and time by Emmanuel Lévinas( Book )
32 editions published between 1993 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 768 libraries worldwide
"This book consists of transcripts from two lecture courses Levinas delivered in 1975-76, his last year at the Sorbonne. They cover some of the most pervasive themes of his thought and were written at a time when he had just published his most important and difficult book, Otherwise than Being, or Beyond Essence. Both courses pursue issues related to the question at the heart of Levinas's thought: ethical relation. The Foreword and Afterword place the lectures in the context of his work as a whole, rounding out this unique picture of Levinas the thinker and the teacher. The lectures are essential to a full understanding of Levinas for three reasons. First, he seeks to explain his thought to an audience of students, with a clarity and an intensity altogether different from his written work. Second, the themes of God, death, and time are not only crucial for Levinas, but they lead him to confront their treatment by the main philosophers of the great continental tradition. Thus his discussions of accounts of death by Heidegger, Hegel, and Bloch place Levinas's thought in a broader context. Third, the basic concepts Levinas employs are those of Otherwise than Being rather than the earlier Totality and Infinity: patience, obsession, substitution, witness, traumatism. There is a growing recognition that the ultimate standing of Levinas as a philosopher may well depend on his assessment of those terms. These lectures offer an excellent introduction to them that shows how they contribute to a wide range of traditional philosophical issues."--Jacket
Otherwise than being, or, Beyond essence by Emmanuel Lévinas( Book )
30 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 758 libraries worldwide
"Otherwise than being or beyond essence is a sequel to Levinas's totality and infinity. An immensely challenging and sophisticated work, it is generally considered Levinas's most important contribution to the contemporary debate surrounding the closure of metaphysical discourse, much commented upon by Jacques Derrida. The work contains a fundamentally original theory of the ethical relationship and describes the face-to-face relationship, sensibility, responsibility and speech. The process of the revelation of Being as laid out by modern phenomenological ontology is severely criticized, as the author claims that the ultimate account of these phenomena is not in ontology, the exposition of the meaning of Being, but in a paradoxical discourse, in a skeptical mode, of what is beyond Being."--Jacket

The 'nations' of the title are the 'seventy nations': in the Talmudic idiom, the whole of humanity surrounding Israel. In this major collection of essays, Levinas considers Judaism's uncertain relationship to European culture since the Enlightenment, problems of distance and integration. It also includes five Talmudic readings from between 1981 and 1986, essays on Franz Rosenzweig and Moses Mendelssohn, and a discussion with Francoise Armengaud which raises questions of central importance to Jewish philosophy in the context of general philosophy. This work brings to the fore the vital encounter between philosophy and Judaism, a hallmark of Levinas's thought

The Levinas reader by Emmanuel Lévinas( Book )
12 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 576 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

On escape = De l'évasion by Emmanuel Lévinas( Book )
9 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 441 libraries worldwide
First published in 1935, this work represents Emmanuel Levinas' first attempt to break with the ontological obsession of the Western tradition. In it, Levinas not only affirms the necessity of an escape from being, but also gives a meaning and a direction to it. Beginning with an analysis of need not as lack or some external limit to a self-sufficient being, but as a positive relation to our being. Levinas moves through a series of phenomenological analyses of such phenomena as pleasure, shame, and nausea in order to show a fundamental insufficiency in the human condition. In his critical introduction, Jacques Rolland places this work in its historical and intellectual context, and also within the context of Levinas' entire oeuvre, explaining Levinas' complication relation to Heidegger, and underscoring the way Levinas' analysis of "being riveted", of the need for escape, is a meditation on the body

Méditations cartésiennes. Introduction á la phénoménologie by Edmund Husserl( Book )
52 editions published between 1931 and 2014 in French and German and held by 431 libraries worldwide
""La nostalgie d'une philosophie vivante a conduit de nos jours à bien des renaissances. Nous demandons : la seule renaissance vraiment féconde ne consisterait-elle pas à ressusciter les Méditations cartésiennes, non certes pour les adopter de toutes pièces, mais pour dévoiler tout d'abord la signification profonde d'un retour radical à l'ego cogito pur, et faire revivre ensuite les valeurs éternelles qui en jaillissent? C'est du moins le chemin qui a conduit à la phénoménologie transcendantale. Ce chemin, nous l'allons parcourir ensemble. En philosophes qui cherchent un premier point de départ et n'en possèdent pas encore, nous allons essayer de méditer à la manière cartésienne "
