By Michael Fagenblat

"I am no longer a very Jewish thinker," acknowledged Emmanuel Levinas, "I am only a thinker." This booklet argues opposed to the assumption, affirmed via Levinas himself, that Totality and Infinity and differently Than Being separate philosophy from Judaism. via examining Levinas's philosophical works throughout the prism of Judaic texts and ideas, Michael Fagenblat argues that what Levinas referred to as "ethics" is as a lot a hermeneutical product wrought from the Judaic historical past as a chain of phenomenological observations. deciphering the Levinas's philosophy of Judaism inside a Heideggerian and Pauline framework, Fagenblat makes use of biblical, rabbinic, and Maimonidean texts to supply sustained interpretations of the philosopher's paintings. eventually he demands a reconsideration of the relation among culture and philosophy, and of the which means of religion after the demise of epistemology.
