De l’intellectualisme à l’éthique
Levinas et la phénoménologie de Husserl
Ousia, « Recueil », 2014. 478 p., 14 × 20,5 cm. ISBN : 978-2-87060-170-9

De l’intellectualisme à l’éthique propose une nouvelle lecture des philosophies d’Emmanuel Levinas, l’élève critique, et d’Edmund Husserl, le père fondateur de la phénoménologie. L’auteur fait voir comment doit être surmonté le conflit présumé entre une phénoménologie qui défend la capacité de discerner toute expérience par le biais de la conscience et une éthique qui expose des situations de vie résistant à tout discernement. De la rencontre historique entre les deux pensées naît ainsi une connivence philosophique inédite qui montre comment s’intègrent l’approche réfléxive, husserlienne, et l’approche pré-réfléxive, lévinasienne, dans le même espace de vie que constitue l’expérience humaine.
Pour mettre en évidence ce lien, le livre recourt à des travaux récents, français et anglo-saxons, qui permettent de fournir une interprétation renouvelée de la phénoménologie de Husserl et de réviser certaines critiques qui dominent la génération des premiers lecteurs de la phénoménologie en France depuis les années trente.

The Gift of the Other
Levinas, Derrida, and a Theology of Hospitality
By Andrew Shepherd

We live in an age of global capitalism and terror. In a climate of consumption and fear the unknown Other is regarded as a threat to our safety, a client to assist, or a competitor to be overcome in the struggle for scarce resources. And yet, the Christian Scriptures explicitly summon us to welcome strangers, to care for the widow and the orphan, and to build relationships with those distant from us. But how, in this world of hostility and commodification, do we practice hospitality? In The Gift of the Other, Andrew Shepherd engages deeply with the influential thought of French thinkers Emmanuel Levinas and Jacques Derrida, and argues that a true vision of hospitality is ultimately found not in postmodern philosophies but in the Christian narrative. The book offers a compelling Trinitarian account of the God of hospitality—a God of communion who “makes room” for otherness, who overcomes the hostility of the world though Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection, and who through the work of the Spirit is forming a new community: the Church—a people of welcome.

For You Alone
Emmanuel Levinas and the Answerable Life
By Terry A. Veling

The works of Emmanuel Levinas, a survivor of the Nazi horror, are striking in the constancy of their thought and the strength of their appeal. We are not condemned to evil and hatred; rather, we are called to be-for-each-other.
For You Alone explores the relational and religious quality of Levinas’ work. Our lives are always twofold rather than “one and the same.” A relational life is dependent on encounters that are revelatory. Revelation means that life is no mere sameness but is tied to the revelation of the other, to you. Here is transcendence par excellence. Here is what the name of God signifies, the relational and ethical bond that takes us outside ourselves toward the other in our midst. What could be more natural, more human, or more divine than to speak of the relational quality of life?
An answerable life means that we are asked after, called, required. “Here I am under your gaze,” Levinas writes, “obliged to you, your servant. In the name of God.”
