Trust by Alphonso Lingis

Book Description

In the tradition of such international travelers as Paul Theroux, Pico Iyer, and Ryszard Kapuscinski, and with insight reminiscent of John Berger and Joan Didion, Lingis shares both the private revelations and the universal connections he acquires on his exotic journeys. "Travel far enough," he concludes, "and we find ourselves happily back in the infantile world"-where trust is ultimate.

Books By Author Alphonso Lingis

Body Transformations by Alphonso Lingis Body Transformations, Hardback (September 2005)

Written by a critic and philosopher, this book examines the question: how are we to understand the strangeness of our bodies? Covering a range of subjects, from ethics and fetishism, to the function of genitals and the distinctiveness of good actions, it is useful for students and scholars of cultural studies, sociology and gender studies.

Dangerous Emotions by Alphonso Lingis Dangerous Emotions, Paperback (March 2000)

Explores the religion of animals, the force in blessings and in curses.

Collected Philosophical Papers by Alphonso Lingis Collected Philosophical Papers, Paperback (January 1998)

This collection contains 11 of the most significant articles written by Emmanuel Levinas, one of the most important philosophers of the phenomenological-existential tradition.

Sensation by Alphonso Lingis Sensation, Hardback (March 1996)

Contesting holistic conceptions of phenomenology and existential philosophy, here, the author refutes the primacy of perception and the practicable world. By contrast, he seeks to elucidate the substantive (sensual and excitable) body.
