PHIL 6610 Philosophy of Levinas (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course will center on a close reading of much of Totality and Infinity. Central themes will be Levinas's argument that ethics is first philosophy, his understanding of subjectivity and the relation with others, and his re-conception of God and religion in light of claims for the death of God. His work will be put into frequent contact with that of, especially, Heidegger and Sartre.
