July 2016 | paper | ISBN: 978-0-8207-0496-8

Book Information:

In volume 10, scholars from several countries contribute essays that range throughout Levinas’s published works to address themes extending into a number of fields of inquiry: aesthetics, biblical theology, politics, and religion. Levinas appears, in turn, as a phenomenologist with an empirical bent, a startling reader of ancient texts, a forceful critic, and a persistent advocate of moral intervention in social life.
