Levinas's project

an interpretative phenomenology of sensibility and intersubjectivity

Bettina Bergo

pp. 61-88

Levinas's work is informed by his attempt to formulate a new ethical response towards other human beings in the light of the Holocaust. His proposal of an originary ethics, positing the primacy of the other, introduces the need of a serious reevaluation of the concepts of responsibility, substitution and transcendence.
