Dr. William Large: The Meaning of the Other in Emmanuel Levinas’ ‘Totality and Infinity’.
Wed. June 15th, 2011.
7:30pm TC002a, FCH Campus - Cheltenham.
This year is the fiftieth anniversary of the publication of Levinas’ ‘Totality and Infinity’, perhaps one of the most important books published in phenomenology in the Twentieth Century. The topic of this book is ethics, which Levinas situates in the experience of the Other who faces me. In this talk, Dr. Large will examine the two meanings of the Other in Levinas’ seminal text, and whether there is any conflict between them.
