About this Book

Leading Chinese and Western philosophers work alongside one another to explore the writings of one of the twentieth century's most perplexing and original ethical and metaphysical thinkers.

  • Comparative discussion of Lévinas on phenomenology, ethics, metaphysics and political philosophy within European philosophy and with Chinese philosophy
  • Innovative accounts of Lévinasian themes of surpassing phenomenology, post-Heideggerian philosophy, the philosophy of saintliness, transcendence and immanence, time and sensibility, desire, death, political philosophy, the subject, and the space of communicativity
