'Emmanuel Levinas's thought has had a profound influence on twentieth-century European philosophy. This collection of essays on religion, politics, and the primary of ethics presents a superb introduction to his work. It allows us to see the scope and significance of one of the defining thinkers of our time.' Arnold I. Davidson, Professor of the Philosophy of Religion, University of Chicago
From the Back Cover
The work of Emmanuel Levinas constitutes a key piece in the development of twentieth-century philosophy, bridging many of the gaps between philosophy, religion, ethics, and law. Published a few years before his death, Entre Nous represents the culmination of Levinas's philosophy. These essays and interviews venture into topics as diverse as the liberal state, legal theory, Jewish philosophy, and love. Ranging in its purview from explorations of metaphysical issues to urgent questions of suffering and responsibility, Entre Nous sounds the major theme of Levinas's philosophy: that philosophy begins with ethics and that ethics begins in the face of the other. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Product Description

As the back cover of the book indicates, I did find this book to actually be an unexpectedly helpful and engaging guide (in spite of its difficulty) to serve as a proficient introduction to the prolific thought of this outstanding author. The essays contained in the book span over a spectrum of about forty years; so the reader is able to glimpse the progression and difference from Levinas's earlier work to his later essays, of which the book is for the better mainly comprised.
For me, these essays are paradigmatic of very technical and complex philosophy mixed with soaring religious insights into the inter-human (and ultimately highly ethical) condition. In Entre-Nous, the reader meets in a face-to-face way why Levinas's work is so vital -- in which ontology is unravelled into ethics, as philosophy is ultimately undone into what is truly religious.
