A Good Reader Long-Overdue Jul 17, 1998
*Basic Philosophical Writings* is the first Levinas essay anthology since *Collected Philosophical Papers." Drs. Pepperzak, Crichtly and Bernasconi write wonderful introductions and great notes (even those that Levinas never wrote). An excellent anthology and very textbook-oriented. A must-buy for Levinas scholars!
