About this product
- DescriptionJean Paul Sartre hailed him as the philosopher who introduced France to Husserl and Heidegger. Derrida has paid him homage as master. An original philosopher who combines the insights of phemelogical analysis with those of Jewish spirituality, Emmanuel Levinas has proven to be of extraordinary importance in the history of modern thought. Collecting Levinas's important writings on religion, Difficult Freedom contributes to a growing debate about the significance of religion-particularly Judaism and Jewish spiritualism-in European philosophy. Topics include ethics, aesthetics, politics, messianism, Judaism and women, and Jewish-Christian relations, as well as the work of Spiza, Hegel, Heidegger, Franz Rosenzweig, Simone Weil, and Jules Issac.
- Author BiographyEmmanuel Levinas was born in Kaunas, Lithuania, in 1906, and became a naturalized French citizen in 1930. His many books include Existences and Essences and Otherwise Than Being or Beyond Essence. He died in Paris in 1995.
