The Ethics of Visuality: Levinas and the Contemporary Gaze

The Ethics of Visuality: Levinas and the Contemporary Gaze

Published by I.B.Tauris
Our world is saturated with images. Overwhelmed by this proliferation of visual stimuli, our gaze becomes increasingly bored and distracted. Do we ever really read and engage with images? Can they ever provide the sense of meaningfulness we crave? French-Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas confronted and subverted these questions.The Ethics of Visuality analyses Levinas' philosophy of the human face in order to show how his vision of 'Otherness' (alterity and transcendence) can open up for us a new and surprising kind of optics that is so needed for an ethical living in the contemporary world.
