There is no better guide than John Lewelyn to lead one through the thickets of Levinass prose. Bursting with questions, multiple references, cascading citations and multilingual puns and nuances, this book is the compelling record of intellectual obsession. Taking as its guiding threthe theme of genealogy, the book gives a broadly chronological and impressively manageable presentation of the whole sweep of the Levinass work. Balanced and finely grained, Llewelyn confronts questions of method, Heidegger, phenomenology, the theme of sensibility, religion, enjoyment, feminity, eros, justice and the political.

The book reaches a stunning climax in a series of chapters that give a hestitant but tolerant discussion of the question of God in Levinas, the relation to Levinasian ethics to Nietzschean genealogy, and an extraordinary discussion of metaphor that leads into a wholly original analysis of Levinass poetics and metaphorics. The book concludes with a sensitive reading of the autobiographical epigraphs to Levinass Otherwise than Being...

and a consideration of the Holocaust.
