By Michael Fagenblat

"I am no longer a very Jewish thinker," acknowledged Emmanuel Levinas, "I am only a thinker." This e-book argues opposed to the assumption, affirmed by way of Levinas himself, that Totality and Infinity and in a different way Than Being separate philosophy from Judaism. by way of analyzing Levinas's philosophical works in the course of the prism of Judaic texts and ideas, Michael Fagenblat argues that what Levinas known as "ethics" is as a lot a hermeneutical product wrought from the Judaic history as a chain of phenomenological observations. interpreting the Levinas's philosophy of Judaism inside a Heideggerian and Pauline framework, Fagenblat makes use of biblical, rabbinic, and Maimonidean texts to supply sustained interpretations of the philosopher's paintings. finally he demands a reconsideration of the relation among culture and philosophy, and of the which means of religion after the dying of epistemology.
