Levinas and the Political, Paperback / softback Book

Levinas and the Political Paperback / softback

Part of the Thinking the Political series

Description

Howard Caygill systematically explores for the first time the relationship between Levinas' thought and the political.

From Levinas' early writings in the face of National Socialism to controversial political statements on Israeli and French politics, Caygill analyses themes such as the deconstruction of metaphysics, embodiment, the face and alterity. He also examines Levinas' engagement with his contemporaries Heidegger and Bataille, and the implications of his rethinking of the political for an understanding of the Holocaust.
