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 9 includes essays that probe the inner contours of Levinas's thinking, as well as others that explore the pertinence of that thinking for important contemporary issues. Extended attention is paid to his conceptions of infinity, Woman, eros, fecundity, and temporality. The ethics of radical responsibility is developed as a resource for understanding human dignity and care for the environment, and prompts a fresh look at the possibility of a protoethical dimension of fundamental ontology.

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.
