Saintly Influence

Edith Wyschogrod and the Possibilities of Philosophy of Religion

Edited by Eric Boynton and Martin Kavka

A Fordham University Press Publication

Since the publication of her first book, the first about Levinas published in English, Edith Wyschogrod has been at the forefront of continental philosophy and philosophy of religion.In this volume, twelve scholars examine and display the influence of Wyschogrod's work in essays that take up the thematics of influence in a variety of contexts: Christian theology, the saintly behavior of the villagers of Le Chambon sur Lignon, the texts of the medieval Jewish mystic Abraham Abulafia, the philosophies of Levinas, Derrida, and Benjamin, the practice of intellectual history, the cultural memory of the New Testament, and pedagogy.
