About this product
- DescriptionThe thought of Emmanuel Levinas is of increasing importance for those working in the diverse fields of phemelogy and continental philosophy, French studies, Jewish studies, ethics, politics and religious studies. In this book, Nigel Zimmermann gives proper attention to the 'incarnate' aspect of the 'other' in Levinas' work, providing a theological reading that explores the basic strands of Levinas' thinking regarding the concrete nature of human living. Human communities, in which politics inevitably plays a crucial role, may learn much from the theological shape of Levinas' philosophy. In all his writings, Levinas cant be understood apart from his roles as a Talmudic commentator and as a radical thinker who suffered personally under the shadow of the Holocaust.
- Author BiographyNigel Zimmermann lectures in theology at the University of Notre Dame Australia. He completed his PhD at the University of Edinburgh and has been a Wingate Scholar since 2011. His previous work has appeared in The Heythrop Journal and The Tablet.
