Levinas and the Crisis of Humanism Paperback / softback
Reexamining Emmanuel Levinas's essays on Jewish education, Claire Elise Katz provides new insights into the importance of education and its potential to transform a democratic society, for Levinas's larger philosophical project.
Katz examines Levinas's "Crisis of Humanism," which motivated his effort to describe a new ethical subject.
Taking into account his multiple influences on social science and the humanities, and his various identities as a Jewish thinker, philosopher, and educator, Katz delves deeply into Levinas's works to understand the grounding of this ethical subject.
