Martin Heidegger, Emmanuel Levinas, and the Politics of Dwelling Paperback / softback
This book explores the ethical and political implications of the debate between Martin Heidegger and Emmanuel Levinas on the question of Place.
It relates their debate to larger disagreements concerning ontology and ethics, the status of humanism, and the relationship between worldliness and transcendence.
Ultimately, in an epoch characterized by tribalism and globalization, the Heidegger-Levinas debate illuminates the need for a contemporary politics of place that enables human beings to dwell and practice hospitality.
