Ethics, exegesis, and philosophy : interpretation after Levinas by Richard A Cohen( )

21 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 2,286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The reputation and influence of Emmanuel Levinas (1906-95) have grown powerfully in recent years. Well known in France in his lifetime, he has since his death become widely regarded as a major European moral philosopher profoundly shaped by his Jewish background. A pupil of Husserl and Heidegger, Levinas pioneered new forms of exegesis with his postmodern readings of the Talmud, and as an ethicist brought together religious and non-religious, Jewish and non-Jewish traditions of contemporary thought." "Richard A. Cohen has written a book which uses Levinas's work as its base but goes on to explore broader questions of interpretation in the context of text-based ethical thinking. Levinas's reorientation of philosophy is considered in critical contrast to alternative contemporary approaches such as those found in modern science, psychology, Nietzsche, Freud, Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, Derrida and Ricoeur. Cohen explores a manner of philosophizing which he terms "ethical exegesis.""--Résumé de l'éditeur
Ninety-two poems and hymns of Yehuda Halevi by Judah( )

11 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 2,057 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is the first publication in English of Franz Rosenzweig's 1927 translation of and commentaries on ninety-two poems and hymns of the greatest medieval "singer of Zion," Yehuda Halevi (born circa 1080). Franz Rosenzweig (1886-1929) is widely recognized as one of the greatest Jewish philosophers of the modern period and his Star of Redemption is considered one of the most important twentieth-century contributions to Jewish - and Christian - theology."--Jacket

New Talmudic readings by Emmanuel Lévinas( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2007 in English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This small but important volume contains three of Emmanuel Levinas's last major lectures on the Talmud, originally presented in 1974, 1988 and 1989. These three readings continue and augment much of Levinas's thought as presented in the earlier works, Nine Talmudic Readings, In the Time of the Nations and Beyond the Verse. These exegetical writings bear on his ever-present concern with ethics, the central focus of his philosophy. One of the most remarkable consequences of this focus, furthermore, is a renewal of philosophy's capacity to both respect and uncover the deepest meanings central to sacred as well as secular texts

Levinasian meditations : ethics, philosophy, and religion by Richard A Cohen( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the book, these seminal essays provide a thorough illumination of Levinas's most original insight and significant contribution to Husserlian phenomenology-which permeates both his philosophical and religious works-that signification and meaning are ultimately based on an ethically structured intersubjectivity that cannot be understood in terms of language and being. Cohen succeeds in defending and clarifying Levinas's commitment to the primacy of ethics, his "ethics as first philosophy," which was the hallmark of the French phenomenologist's intellectual career

Time and the other and additional essays by Emmanuel Lévinas( Book )

6 editions published between 1987 and 2008 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Time and the Other contains a series of essays presented as lectures in 1946–47 at the Collège Philosophique in Paris, along with additional essays dealing with time, sociality, and ethics. This work represents, along with Existence and Existents, the first formulation of Levinas's own philosophy, later more fully developed in other works. Beginning with an analysis of existence without existents, Time and the Other then describes the origination of the subject, and moves through its encounter with another person
The small town in America : a guide for study and community development. Prepared for the U.S. Office of Education (Environmental Education) by Bert E Swanson( Book )

4 editions published between 1976 and 1977 in English and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Small town community improvement planning is often subjected to urban type analysis. When concepts applicable to the largest cities are grafted onto small towns, a misunderstanding of small town problems and prospects is often the result. Social ecology offers a framework for understanding what a small town is, how it functions, and what is uniquely important about it. It focuses on four dimensions: (1) social structure; (2) the local economy; (3) influence patterns; and (4) cultural norms. These dimensions are highly interrelated and to understand a small town (population less than 10,000) without coming to grips with them is "impossible, inadequate, and seriously misleading". In this manual the basic elements of social ecology are explored. Chapter II discusses the social structure of a small town--the characteristics and dynamics of grouping small towners according to indicators of status and prestige. Chapter III presents the local economy as an essential analytic component, and Chapter IV explores the patterns of influence--who shapes opinions, where decisions are made, and how government is implemented. Chapter V's discussion of cultural norms involves both the kinds of beliefs and values and the institutions that generate and preserve them. In each chapter a discussion guide lists tasks to assist the reader in applying the concepts toward his own community. The final chapter integrates the four dimensions and discusses their meaning for small town problem solving. (Author/DS)

Humanism of the other by Emmanuel Lévinas( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Humanism of the Other Emmanuel Levinas argues that it is not only possible but of the highest importance to understand one's humanity through the humanity of others. Based in a new appreciation for ethics, and taking new departures from the phenomenology of Hegel, Heidegger, Husserl, and Merleau-Ponty, the idealism of Plato and Kant, and the skepticism of Nietzsche and Blanchot, Levinas rehabilitates humanism and restores its promises. Painfully aware of the long history of dehumanization that reached its apotheosis in Hitler and Nazism, Levinas does not underestimate the difficulty of reconciling oneself with another. We find our humanity, Levinas argues, not through mathematics, rational metaphysics, or introspection. Rather, it is found in the recognition that the suffering and mortality of others are the obligations and morality of the self."--Cover page 4
