Levinas, The Frankfurt School and Psychoanalysis

First Edition


184 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
'Original and provocative . . . engagingly written. (C Fred Alford) counters Levinas's notorious obscurity with a goodly dose of transparency' - John Lechte, Macquarrie University

Abstract and evocative, writing in what can only be described as the language of prophecy, Emmanuel Levinas has become everything to everyone. We pretend we get it, writing in much the same style, so as to say whatever we wanted to say in the first place. The 'Levinas Effect' it has been called, the ability of Levinas's texts to say anything the reader wants to hear, so that Levinas becomes a deconstructionist, theologian, proto-feminist, or even a reconciler of postmodern ethics and rabbinical Judaism.
