Jewish inspiration of Emmanuel Levinas
AbstractThis survey examines the Jewish inspiration of the work of Emma- nuel Levinas. This inspiration has been long recognized explicitly in his Talmudic expositions that have appeared since the sixties. However, also the two central works of Levinas’s philosophical and ethical endeavour, his Totality and in nity (1961) and his Otherwise than being (1973), even thou arguing philosophically, do in their deep structure deal with the central concepts of the Bible, namely the utmost authority of Biblical prohibitions and the peculiar Hebrew idiom hinneni de ning personality as the one who provide him- or herself to the Other.
