We shall continue discussion of selected
readings from two of Levinas' books:
Is It Righteous To Be?
Totality and Infinity
Levinas's books are not generally easy
to read. He is frequently answering Heidegger, and responding to
Huserl, drawing also on the thoughts and concepts of other philosophers
through the centuries. We willa ttempt here to throw some light
on some of Levinas' key concepts, such as:
The absolute concern for the Other
The Face-to-face encounter of the Other
The notion of ethics for Levinas
The concepts of "Totality"
How the idea of infinity might lead to
one thinking of the concept of God.
Join us at the Philosophy Café
for some wine and good food, and ointeresting conversation. The
idea of the Philosophy Cafe is to think of philsophical concepts
and relate these to our lives as we live them now.
