Published in 2008 | cloth | ISBN: 978-0-8207-0406-7
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. One volume of original essays appears each year.
This volume features an interview with Levinas previously published only in Dutch. In the accompanying essays, some contributors probe Levinas's thought as it develops a theory of ethical politics capable of attending to themes of community, statehood, peace, and violence, while others examine the relation of that theory to the work of contemporary political philosohers including Antonio Negri, Charles Taylor, and Simone Wellp.
Contributors include: Emmanuel Levinas, Johan F. Goud, Michael Barber, Bettina Bergo, Robert Bernasconi, Maria Clara Lucchetti Bingemer, John Drabinski, James Faulconer, Rudi Visker, and Lawrence Vogel.
Jeffrey Bloechl is associate professor of philosophy at Boston College. He is the author of Liturgy of the Neighbor: Emmanuel Levinas and the Religion of Responsibility and the editor of Religious Experience and the End of Metaphysics.
