Levinas and the Night of Being

A Guide to Totality and Infinity

Raoul Moati, Translated by Daniel Wyche, and Foreword by Jocelyn Benoist

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • A splendid introduction to Levinas and especially to his masterpiece Totality and Infinity.
  • Situates Levinas's book in relation to the philosophical conversations which are eclipsed when the book is read as a precursor to Otherwise than Being and shows the inextricable links between Levinas's account of ethics and his ontology.
  • Moati is a major younger French philosopher himself, and although he's well versed in Levinas's work, he also works across a number of questions in continental and analytic philosophy. His recently published account of the Derrida-Searle debate has been well received.
