Levinas and Kierkegaard in Dialogue by Merold Westphal
Book DescriptionFew philosophers have devoted more than passing attention to similarities between the thought of Soren Kierkegaard, a Danish Christian, and Emmanuel Levinas, a French Jew. Here, one of philosophy of religion's most distinctive voices offers a sustained comparison. Focusing on questions surrounding otherness, transcendence, postmodernity, and the nature of religious thought, Merold Westphal draws readers into a dialogue between the two thinkers. Westphal's masterful command of both philosophies shows that each can learn from the other. Levinas and Kierkegaard in Dialogue is an insightful and accessible contribution to philosophical considerations of ethics and religion.

Books By Author Merold Westphal
Kierkegaard, Paperback / softback (June 2016)
Should Christians be wary of Kierkegaard? Is he an irrational existentialist philosopher who only wants to confuse his readers? Mark Tietjen presents the Danish thinker in a fresh light as a missionary to Christians who have lost sight of the goodness and kindness of God.
Transcendence and Self-transcendence, Paperback (July 2004)
Seeks to rethink divine transcendence in relation to modes of human self-transcendence. Touching upon Spinoza, Hegel, Augustine, Pseudo-Dionysius, Aquinas, Barth, Kierkegaard, Levinas, Derrida, and Marion, this work centres around a critique of onto-theology, the importance of alterity, the decentered self, and the autonomous transcendental ego.
