Emmanuel Levinas' Totality and Infinity is a monumental work of phenomenological enquiry that goes on to assert the centrality of ethics to philosophical thought. This Reader's Guide provides a detailed explanation of the work, breaking down the occasionally intimidating but always inspirational content of Totality and Infinity for non-specialist readers, unpacking the complexities of Levinas' thought with clarity and rigour. Ideal for students coming to Levinas for the first time, the book offers essential guidance, outlining key themes, approaches to reading the text, the reception, and influence of the work, and recommends secondary reading materials.
William Large is a Reader in Philosophy at University of Gloucestershire, UK. He is the author of Ethics and the Ambiguity of Writing: Emmanuel Levinas and Maurice Blanchot (2005), Maurice Blanchot [co-authored] (2001) and Heidegger's Being and Time (2007)
