Examining critically the limits of his thinking, they also bear witness to its influence on contemporary philosophy, thus demonstrating the significance of his groundbreaking project of establishing ethics as first philosophy. In four parts, "First Philosophy, Phenomenology, and Ethics," "Phenomenology and its Theological Turn?," "Ethics and Aesthetics," "Phenomenology, Hermeneutics, Deconstruction," the major themes in Levinas' oeuvre are addressed, such as alterity, human dignity, religion, and communication.

Review:

"Overall, Debating Levinas' Legacy provides new insights into the traditional problems that have been central issues for Levinas scholars...The fact that the book combines essays written in English with essays in German and French testifies to its appreciation of the plurality of philosophical languages and adds to its international appeal." -Geoffrey Dierckxsens, University of Antwerp, Ethical Perspectives 23 (2016) 3.
