Emmanuel Levinas: A Philosophy of Exile (Bloomsbury Studies in Continental Philosophy)

Abi Doukhan


Our period is profoundly marked through the phenomenon of exile and it's has turn into more and more pressing to reconsider the concept that of exile and our stance in the direction of it. This renewed mirrored image at the challenge of exile brings to the fore a couple of questions in regards to the often damaging connotation of exile. Is there no longer differently to appreciate the situation of exile?

Permeated with references to the 'stranger', the 'other' and 'exteriority', the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas indicates a good figuring out of exile. This unique and compelling booklet distills from Levinas's philosophy a knowledge of exile, for the 1st time laying off a good mild at the of exile itself. Abi Doukhan argues that Levinas's philosophy should be understood as a entire philosophy of exile, from his ethics to his recommendations on society, love, wisdom, spirituality and paintings, thereby proposing a entire view of the philosophy of Levinas himself in addition to a renewed figuring out of the wealth and contribution of exile to a given society.
