9780823230884: Saintly Influence: Edith Wyschogrod and the Possibilities of Philosophy of Religion (Perspectives in Continental Philosophy)

Since the publication of her first book, Emmanuel Levinas: The Problem of Ethical Metaphysics, in 1974-the first book about Levinas published in English-Edith Wyschogrod has been at the forefront of the fields of Continental philosophy and philosophy of religion. Her work has crossed many disciplinary boundaries, making peregrinations from phenomenology and moral philosophy to historiography, the history of religions (both Western and non-Western), aesthetics, and the philosophy of biology. In all of these discourses, she has sought to cultivate an awareness of how the self is situated and influenced, as well as the ways in which a self can influence others.

In this volume, twelve scholars examine and display the influence of Wyschogrod's work in essays that take up the thematics of influence in a variety of contexts: Christian theology, the saintly behavior of the villagers of Le Chambon sur Lignon, the texts of the medieval Jewish mystic Abraham Abulafia, the philosophies of Levinas, Derrida, and Benjamin, the practice of intellectual history, the cultural memory of the New Testament, and pedagogy.

In response, Wyschogrod shows how her interlocutors have brought to light her multiple authorial personae and have thus marked the ambiguity of selfhood, its position at the nexus of being influenced by and influencing others.

About the Author:

Eric Boynton is Professor and Chair of Philosophy and Religious Studies at Allegheny College.

Review:

Essays that both examine and extend the work of the American scholar (1930-2009). (―The Chronicle of Higher Education)

Authoritatively and comprehensively provides the intellectual context for
Wyschogrod's scholarly life's work.

(―Victor E. Taylor author of Religion after Postmodernism: Retheorizing Myth and Literature)

Committed to the contours of postmodernism, Edith Wyschogrod is perhaps the most important expositor of (re)constructing ethics in light of the uncertainties of the present age. These essays, authored by colleagues and students who have emerged as important scholars in their respective fields, exhibit the profound influence she has had in philosophy, Jewish and Christian theology, religion, mysticism, and history. Her rigor, insight, creativity, and generosity jump from the pages of these essays and her response. This collection is a testament to one of our most cherished and beloved teachers. (―Shaul Magid Indiana University)

A fine set of essays that fittingly pay tribute to the saintly influence of
Edith Wyschogrod.

(―Bruce Ellis Benson Wheaton College)

An impressive and eclectic group of contributors that represents the
breadth and diversity of Wyschogrod's intellectual curiosity.

(―B. Keith Putt Samford University)
