PHIL 414 - (D,P) Philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas

3 cr.

(Prerequisites: PHIL 120  and PHIL 210 )

This course is a study of the twentieth-century Jewish philosopher, Emmanuel Levinas.  We will focus on Levinas’ theory of ethical experience, an account that takes its categories from both Greek and Hebrew sources, thereby enriching the dialogue between Jewish and Christian traditions in philosophy.
