By Michael Fagenblat

"I am no longer a very Jewish thinker," stated Emmanuel Levinas, "I am only a thinker." This booklet argues opposed to the belief, affirmed by way of Levinas himself, that Totality and Infinity and in a different way Than Being separate philosophy from Judaism. through studying Levinas's philosophical works during the prism of Judaic texts and concepts, Michael Fagenblat argues that what Levinas known as "ethics" is as a lot a hermeneutical product wrought from the Judaic history as a chain of phenomenological observations. deciphering the Levinas's philosophy of Judaism inside of a Heideggerian and Pauline framework, Fagenblat makes use of biblical, rabbinic, and Maimonidean texts to supply sustained interpretations of the philosopher's paintings. eventually he demands a reconsideration of the relation among culture and philosophy, and of the that means of religion after the demise of epistemology.
