9780253350824: Levinas and Kierkegaard in Dialogue (Indiana Series in the Philosophy of Religion)

Few philosophers have devoted more than passing attention to similarities between the thought of Søren Kierkegaard, a Danish Christian, and Emmanuel Levinas, a French Jew. Here, one of philosophy of religion's most distinctive voices offers a sustained comparison. Focusing on questions surrounding otherness, transcendence, postmodernity, and the nature of religious thought, Merold Westphal draws readers into a dialogue between the two thinkers. Westphal's masterful command of both philosophies shows that each can learn from the other. Levinas and Kierkegaard in Dialogue is an insightful and accessible contribution to philosophical considerations of ethics and religion.

"This is an important and engaging work that will help readers to understand better not only Levinas and Kierkegaard, but also the nature of otherness and transcendence." --Brian Treanor, Loyola Marymount University
