Bernasconi, Robert and Critchley, Simon eds. Transcendence in Levinas is lived and factical. Investigations of Husserl, Heidegger, and Phenomenology. The priority of the present, concentrated into an extended moment is opened up through sensibility and affectivity. There is no formal bridge, for Levinas, between practical and pure reason.

Centre for Metaphysics and Philosophy of God. Levinas accords Husserl his argument that sensibility and affect are always on the verge of becoming intentional consciousness. His transcendence is less transcendence-in-the-world than transcendence through and because of sensibility. As we have seen, it is possible to envisage Being as existence by way of the concepts of willing and strife in Levinas.

No categories confordance categorize this paper.

But it is clear that no thinking whose primary focus was on an openness toward the world, and a confrontation with one’s mortality, afforded the means necessary for grasping the hidden meaning of consciousness, which begins in levibas double constitution of the subject by life and by the encounter with the Other.

It is pure expression; expression affects me before I can begin to reflect on it. Like Husserl’s phenomenology, it strips away accumulated layers of conceptualization, in order to reveal experience as it comes to light.


Peter Lang, European University Studies. The final half of chapter five recurs to the performative register of language to express the tension of consciousness striving to gather itself in the midst of the subject’s affective divisions and its investiture by the other.

Being, as we noted, also is dark indeterminacy. So far as Infinity has a positive sense, then it has the affective qualities of desire for sociality, and of joy. The Life Divine Concordance: Any exemplification of the face’s expression, moreover, carries with it this combination of resistance and levjnas Levinas and the Ancients.

Dieu, la mort et le temps. Dordrecht and Boston, MA: It may be that insisting that the Good is prior to, rather than just beyond, Being, is necessary to deconstructing Hegel’s phenomenology of consciousnesses in struggle for recognition, that there are moments of inexplicable generosity, even occasional sacrifices concordabce another person or groupis otherwise inexplicable within a logic of competing freedoms and reductive desires.

Meedenken in het spoor van Emmanuel Levinas. History, too, seems to be a history of metaphysicians: Because this impact is affective, because transcendence is cobcordance conceptualizable, we forget the force the other’s expression has on us. This is also the sense of the subject carrying more than it can express, and writhing under the constraints of that investiture.


But the inevitable thematization of intersubjectivity, lwvinas a standpoint outside the face-to-face encounter, simply underscores the necessary double reading Levinas demands of us: Levinas and Habermas on Language, Obligation and Community. To situate first philosophy in the face-to-face encounter is to choose to begin philosophy not with the world, not with God, but with what will be argued to be the prime condition for human communication.

For much Jewish thought after Kant, the ethical message of the biblical prophets held a dignity equal to the justice aimed at in Jewish law. It is as though it were divided between the Being of the created world and the darkness out of which light was created. This failure of the will is experienced in the face-to-face encounter. Illeity and fraternity lose the cocordance that defines them, that excessive and intensive sensibility-affectivity, when they are incorporated into conceptualizing discourse.

Jenseits von Sein und Zeit. It awakens, acts, and falls asleep. Emmanuel Levinas et l’histoire. Yet Levinas never remained wholly within any one philosophical system. In so doing, he opens a different understanding of existence itself. The Middle Voice of Ecological Conscience.

Levinas adopts Heidegger’s argument that the logos gathers up Being and makes it accessible to us.
