Now available in an affordable paperback edition, this volume traces the unfolding of Levinas's phenomenology into his hermenutics of subjectivity, focusing on two major works, Totality and Infinity and Otherwise than Being, or Beyond Essence with a view toward sketching the destiny of a phenomenology of ethical intersubjectivity. This work provides both an insight into the evolution of Levinas's work and a clear, critical perspective on the shortcomings of the use of phenomenology in ethics. As well, Bergo demonstrates the difficulties for postmodern thought found in the relationship between ethics and politics.

About the Author:

BETTINA BERGO is professor of philosophy at the University of Montreal. She has translated three of Levinas's works, Of God Who Comes to Mind, God, Death, and Time, and Evasion: On Escape.

Review:

`Bergo's work is not for novices. However, those familiar with Levinas's thought are likely to find it an astonishingly erudite, even indispensable, reading of his major works as well as a subtle, cogently argued interpretation of the ambiguities, rifts and paradoxes inherent in the relation of ethics to polity.'
The Journal of Speculative Philosophy, 15:1 (2001)
