Levinas Studies: An Annual Review is dedicated to scholarly work on the innovations and implications of the thought of Emmanuel Levinas, one of the twentieth century’s most eminent philosophers and religious thinkers. This series strives to advance reflection on Levinas’s thinking, in its pertinence for fields including philosophy, psychology, religious studies, theology, and the study of literature.

Volume 8 specifically addresses the current debate among scholars regarding the relation between Levinas’s talmudic writings and his philosophical work. By engaging Levinas on such questions concerning Judaism and philosophy, and the relationship between text and inspiration, these eight essays take those issues considerably further into the field. Specifically, the authors treat Levinas and his contemporary thinkers Lacan and Jankélévitch, his interest in the writing of Shakespeare and Léon Bloy, his philosophy of language and exegesis, and finally, Levinasian meditations on Hebrew texts of Scripture.

JEFFREY BLOECHL is associate professor of philosophy at Boston College. He is the author of Liturgy of the Neighbor: Emmanuel Levinas and the Religion of Responsibility and the editor of Religious Experience and the End of Metaphysics.
