Guest editor John E. Drabinski presents a volume devoted to the study of the intertwining of race and racism and the notions of alterity, history, and responsibility within Levinas's philosophy. Essays consider Levinas's thought as it relates to the lived-experience of race, how his writings relate to colonialism and postcolonialism, and the ways in which his corpus is subject to radical critique by subaltern discourses.
Dedicated to scholarly work on the innovations and implications of the thought of Emmanuel Levinas, Levinas Studies includes insightful and inspiring essays by well-known and newer Levinas scholars. Under the general editorship of Jeffrey Bloechl, one volume of original essays appears each year.
