Emmanuel Levinas on Morality, Justice, and the Political

A one-week seminar for sixteen college and university teachers on the ethical and political philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas.

This proposal is for a one-week seminar for college and university teachers on the ethical and political philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas (1906-1995). Levinas is now accounted one of the most important philosophers of the 20th century for having re-grounded knowledge and politics in ethics, and ethics in responsibility: being-for-the-other before being for oneself. The seminar will be at the University at Buffalo (SUNY) in July of 2017. It is designed for colleagues seeking sustained intellectual engagement with Levinas’s thought as a profound and relevant re-framing of the relationships between morality, justice and the political.
