DESCRIPTION

Edith Wyschogrod presents the first full-length study in English of the important contemporary French philosopher Emmanuel Levinas. It is a revision of the author's earlier study and includes discussions of his recent writings as well as current scholarship. Dr. Wyschogrod's extensive discussion of Levinas's relation to Judaism, especially his use of literature from the Torah and other religious writings, will be of interest to religious scholars. The author compares Levinas's thought with that of his contemporaries, most notably Jacques Derrida and Husserl.
