Synopsis: First published in 1935, On Escape represents Emmanuel Levinas's first attempt to break with the ontological obsession of the Western tradition. In it, Levinas not only affirms the necessity of an escape from being, but also gives a meaning and a direction to it. Beginning with an analysis of need not as lack or some external limit to a self-sufficient being, but as a positive relation to our being, Levinas moves through a series of brilliant phenomenological analyses of such phenomena as pleasure, shame, and nausea in order to show a fundamental insufficiency in the human condition.
In his critical introduction and annotation, Jacques Rolland places On Escape in its historical and intellectual context, and also within the context of Levinas's entire oeuvre, explaining Levinas's complicated relation to Heidegger, and underscoring the way Levinas's analysis of "being riveted," of the need for escape, is a meditation on the body.

From the Back Cover: “On Escape is an extremely important early text by someone considered by many to be the most important ethical thinker of the twentieth century. It contains the first full treatment of many of the themes Levinas would pursue over the next sixty years. Rolland’s contributions are not simply helpful supplements to the essay but a quasi-necessity for understanding its place and significance for both Levinas’s work in particular and twentieth century thought in general.” —Michael Naas,DePaul University
