Thematic Issue of Discipline Filosofiche XXIV, 1, 2014:
Emmanuel Levinas: Phenomenology, Ethics, Sociality
Volume Editor: Sebastiano Galanti Grollo
On the occasion of the thirty-year anniversary of the publication of Autrement qu’être ou au-delà de l’essence «Discipline Filosofiche» intends to devote an issue to the thought of Emmanuel Levinas, whose relevance in contemporary philosophical discourse has steadily increased, as evidenced by the remarkable vitality of Levinasian studies. While Levinas’s early interpreters focused mainly on the ethical implications of his work, over the years new directions for research have emerged which approach his works from other perspectives, with particular reference to a reconsideration of his phenomenological method. The relationship between ethical issues and the many instances of civil society and politics is currently one of the most promising areas in Levinasian research, where the recognition of the dimension of passivity in ethical experience is associated with a renewed attention on the forms and conditions of human action.
The aim of this edition is to expound upon Levinasian theories in their various aspects, beginning with issues raised by the state of cultural and ethical pluralism which characterizes contemporary societies, by promoting research that will discuss both the philosophical premises, as stricty related to phenomenological reflection, and the outcomes and prospects for their development.
Some of the topics which authors are invited to consider are: the relational character of identity, both individual and collective; sensibility and passivity as essential aspects of ethics; conditions and forms of ethical agency, from responsibility to indifference; the question of justice and of the «third», also with regard to the role of institutions; and current instances of sociality: e.g., autonomy, recognition, hospitality.
