Synopsis: Emmanuel Levinas was born in Lithuania in 1906. He went to France in 1923 and later became the initiator of Husserlian phenomenology in that country. His influence in the works of many contemporary French intellectuals has been great. His most significant contribution has been to reintroduce the question of the existence of God into philosophical debate. This book examines just how Levinas does this. It is a study of his «philosophy of religion,» his «phenomenology of the other person» and his critique of Western ontology.
«Valevicius' provocative analysis of Levinas' thought makes an important contribution to our understanding of a major thinker.» (Harry M. Bracken, McGill University)
«A very enlightening presentation of the major aspects of Levinas' philosophy! Andrius Valevicius' book successfully combines objective analysis and criticism.» (Richard Bodéüs, Université de Montréal)
«Valevicius' book is a valuable contribution not only to philosophy and its history, but also to the history of culture and of the inter-cultural 'crosspollination'.» (Petro B.T. Bilaniuk, St. Michael's College Book Review, Toronto)
