Inhaltsangabe: Combining elements from Heidegger’s philosophy of being-in-the-world” and the tradition of Jewish theology, Levinas has evolved a new type of ethics based on a concept of the Other” in two different but complementary aspects. He describes his encounters with those philosophers and literary authors (most of them his contemporaries) whose writings have most significantly contributed to the construction of his own philosophy of Otherness”: Agnon, Buber, Celan, Delhomme, Derrida, Jabès, Kierkegaard, Lacroix, Laporte, Picard, Proust, Van Breda, Wahl, and, most notably, Blanchot.
At the same time, Levinas’s own texts are inscriptions and documents of those encounters with Others” around which his philosophy is turning. Thus the texts simultaneously convey an immediate experience of how his intellectual position emerged and how it is put into practice. A third potential function of the book is that it unfolds the network of references and persons in philosophical debates since Kierkegaard.
From the Back Cover: “Perhaps the names of persons whose saying signifies a face—proper names in the middle of all these common names and commonplaces—can resist the dissolution of meaning and help us to speak.” —From the author’s Foreword

Buchbeschreibung Stanford University Press, Stanford, CA, 1996. Trade Paperback. Buchzustand: Near Fine. First Edition. 191 pages. A philosophical treatment of ethics drawing on Martin Heidegger and Jewish theology. First edition (first printing). A fine copy in wrappers (paperback). This copy belonged to the painter R. B. Kitaj, with his last name neatly written in red ink below the title on the half-title page, a practice he followed only for books he read closely. Also with bookseller Peter Howard's 'lem' code--used for books from Kitaj's library--on the half-title. Levinas's influence on Kitaj's thinking is alluded to in the Second Diasporist Manifesto, where Kitaj writes, 'I'm tempted to add Levinas and Scholem and Benjamin to my personal gang of art guys. Yes, add them!' (part 17). Then later, in section 33, he continues, 'Levinas for painting. Face to Face. The Face of the Other. Think of him as a rare Jewish angel of face-souls. Keep reading his thrilling books for ethical art energies, etc.' Kitaj has underlined and marked a half-dozen places in the text of this copy of Levinas. A nice connection between an important contemporary Jewish painter and one of his sources of inspiration. Signed by Other. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 106554
