This week, we take a look at Levinas' Totality and Infinity on the face-to-face encounter with the Other. We'll discuss the question of morality - of why we should be good - as the backdrop for Levinas' postulating of ethics as first philosophy. Then we'll look at Levinas' description of the face-to-face encounter with the Other, one motivated by desire which orients us and gives meaning to our existence. Finally, we'll touch on Levinas' chief example of the Other in the feminine.
