By Yael Lin,Ephraim Meir,Edna Langenthal,Gary D. Mole,Elisabeth Goldwyn,Catherine Chalier,Eli Schonfeld,Michal Ben-Naftali,Richard A. Cohen,Hanoch Ben-Pazi,Tamar Abramov

The ebook bargains new insights at the beginning up of Levinas's proposal and biblical tales to each other; it considers the ways that Levinas can open up the biblical textual content to requestioning, and the way the biblical textual content can tell our interpreting of Levinas. developing in discussion the heteronomic texts – the narrative texts of the bible and Levinas's philosophical texts – permits an enforced and renewed figuring out of either. The exam of those matters is pursued from various views and disciplines, probing the position biblical figures play in Levinas's inspiration and the style through which to method them. Do the biblical allusions serve in Levinas's notion purely as a rhetorical and literary equipment, as illustrations of his rules, or maybe they've got a deeper philosophical which means, which contributes to his venture as a rule? Do the references to biblical figures paintings in Levinas's philosophy in a fashion that different literary figures are incapable of, and the way do those references conform to his conflicted perspective in the direction of literature?
