Product Description

Review

Eaglestone's book breaks new ground...the information provided helped me further understand Levinas within the tradition of a philosophy that would at one time reject the aesthetic, but simultaneously use the asethetic example to make many of its points. A welcome illustration of the pertinence of Levinas to current debates about the ethical value of literature and reading. Levinas is a difficult writer, and Eaglestone succeeds in explicating key Levinasian ideas about the saying and the said in ways that will help literary critics and theorists build productive conceptual links between this enormously stimulating thinker and other voices among those concerned with the ethical dimension of reading.
