Man as a Place of God is an examination of Levinas' philosophy of religion in the light of his ethics and anthropology. It provides a lively introduction to the main themes of Levinas' thought and offers critical perspectives on Levinas by relating his work to that of Heidegger, Ricoeur, Rorty, Derrida and Vattimo. The focus of interpretation is the hermeneutics of 'kenosis': the subject's ability to be open towards the other to the point where man can be seen as a place of 'God', a place where the infinite attains to finite existence.

Produktbeschreibung
Man as a Place of God is an examination of Levinas' philosophy of religion in the light of his ethics and anthropology. It provides a lively introduction to the main themes of Levinas' thought and offers critical perspectives on Levinas by relating his work to that of Heidegger, Ricoeur, Rorty, Derrida and Vattimo. The focus of interpretation is the hermeneutics of 'kenosis': the subject's ability to be open towards the other to the point where man can be seen as a place of 'God', a place where the infinite attains to finite existence. Does this mean that the kenotic subject totally disappears from the arena of his own life, to reach out for a sublime existence that is no longer of 'this world' - as in the philosophy of Plato, Plotinus and certain mystical thinkers? This book will argue the reverse: the kenotic sublimity developed by Levinas is in keeping with ethics, and even with concrete acts of responsibility. Also, it refers to a certain idea of God, who comes into being in a 'kenotic' way: by giving himself in the ethical experience of man and woman, regardless of their culture and religious beliefs.

Care for Ourselves and Care for Others: Levinas and Rorty. 3. The Other of the Other: on Levinas and Derrida. Part 2. Ethics, religion and kenosis. 4. Evil, Transcendence and God. 5. Religion and Interruption: The Effects of the Idea of the Infinite. 6. Hermeneutics of Kenosis: The road of Dispossission. Bibliography. Name and Subject Index.

Rezensionen
From the reviews: "We are now in the second generation of Levinas studies, and this volume properly presumes a familiarity with both the Levinas corpus and a fair number of first generation studies. The author is a professor at the Protestant Theological University in Kampen, The Netherlands; and her book bestrides philosophy and theology much in the way Levinas's own works do. ... Renée van Riessen has presented this theme clearly and persuasively in a welcome contribution to Levinas studies." (Andrew Tallon, American Catholic Philosophical Quarterly, Vol. 83 (4), 2009)
