About this product
- DescriptionEmmanuel Levinas is best kwn for having reintroduced the question of ethics into the Continental philosophical tradition. In The Metaphysics of Love, however, Stella Sandford argues that an over-emphasis on ethics in the reception of Levinas's thought has covered over both the basis and the details of his philosophical project--a metaphysics which affirms the necessity to think of an unqualified transcendence as a first principle. Sandford's book is at the same time a powerful feminist critique of both Levinas's gendered philosophical categories and the attempt to reclaim aspects of this philosophy for feminist theory.
- Author BiographyStella Sandford is Lecturer on Modern European Philosophy at Middlesex University, London. She is a member of the Radical Philosophy Editorial Collective, and has published work on Levinas, Plato and feminist philosophy.
