Emmanuel Levinas: His Life and Legacy

Source: Jewish Book Council

Levinas (1906–1995), French phenomenologist steeped in Jewish tradition, is unquestionably one of the greatest ethical philosophers and religious thinkers of the 20th century. As a Jewishly-animated philosopher, he is on the level of such giants as Martin Buber and Franz Rosenzweig. Levinas’ main focus was to explicate an ethical “face-to-face” relation with the Other, which, while immediate and singular, is also transcendent.
