Books By Author Emmanuel Levinas

Outside the Subject by Emmanuel Levinas Outside the Subject, Paperback (November 2008)

Emmanuel Levinas was one of the most important and influential European thinkers of the twentieth century. This book contains essays that explore his project of revising the phenomenological picture of the world in light of our experience of other persons.

Difficult Freedom by Emmanuel Levinas Difficult Freedom, Paperback (September 2008)

Topics include ethics, aesthetics, politics, messianism, Judaism and women, and Jewish-Christian relations, as well as the work of Spinoza, Hegel, Heidegger, Franz Rosenzweig, Simone Weil, and Jules Issac.

Humanism of the Other by Emmanuel Levinas Humanism of the Other, Paperback (October 2005)

Argues that it is not only possible but of the highest exigency to understand one's humanity through the humanity of others. This book also argues that the humanity of the human is found in the recognition that the other person comes first, that the suffering and mortality of others are the obligations and morality of the self.

On Escape by Emmanuel Levinas On Escape, Paperback (February 2003)

First published in 1935, On Escape represents Emmanuel Levinas's first attempt to break with the ontological obsession of the Western tradition. In it, Levinas not only affirms the necessity of an escape from being, but also gives a meaning and a direction to it.
