The vintage notion of human transcendental awareness assumes its self-supporting existential prestige in the horizon of life-world, nature and earth. but this assumed absoluteness doesn't entail the character of its powers, neither their constitutive strength. This latter demand an existential resource achieving past the generative life-world community.

De L’Éthique À La Justice: Langage et politique dans la by Ernst Wolff PDF

Emmanuel Lévinas est le philosophe de los angeles non-indifférence; il n’est en aucune sorte un philosophe indifférent. Son inquiétude personnelle et engagement politique ont trouvé une expression philosophique dans une quête � deux versants. Dans le versant ontologique, il cherche � montrer que même si l’homme est l’événement de compréhension de l’être, tout l’homme et toute signification ne se réduisent pas � l. a. compréhension de l’être seul.

New PDF release: The origins of responsibility

François Raffoul methods the idea that of accountability in a fashion that's precise from its conventional interpretation as responsibility of the willful topic. Exploring accountability within the works of Nietzsche, Sartre, Levinas, Heidegger, and Derrida, Raffoul identifies decisive moments within the improvement of the concept that, retrieves its origins, and explores new reflections on it.

Example text

The Stranger cleaves: binds and loosens. It cleaves to us and cleaves a space between us. It joins and disjoins, links and separates. At one moment a bridge, another an abyss. But always a twofold cleaving. So let us be clear. Our poetic phenomenology proposes at least two amendments to the traditional account of the Stranger: first, a richer description of incarnation that intertwines aesthesis and poiesis, and second, an attention to the power of phronesis to navigate our concrete linguistic and political situations.

True, Levinas wrote of erotic desire for the Other—and especially the feminine Other—but the face of the Other so desired has no singular features or moods. The eyes of the face, qua trace of transcendence, have no color or complexion. For Levinas, embodiment is a lure, a carnal pretext for the ethical call of the Stranger. True, Derrida speaks of the situated identities of foreigners—in flesh and blood, here and now before us—but it is always as defined by us and in our terms (the absolute Other escapes us).

89 If the encounter with the Stranger takes place at the site of the body, then we must ask what experience that body makes possible (or impossible). Dialogical Hermeneutics: Phronesis So we find ourselves back at the threshold of risk: How are we to know the human from the inhuman, the divine from the undivine, the welcome Stranger from the violent aggressor? Poetic phenomenology must pay attention to the moment of phronesis—the assessment of the hostility or friendship of the one at the doorway or frontier.
