Otherness and Ethics

  • By Shinhyung Seong
Product Description
Otherness and Ethics demonstrates how Levinas and Confucius (Kongzi) develop their ideas of otherness and ethics. Most of all, the meaning of inter-subjectivity is examined in order to employ this point as this book delves into the phenomenon of face in Levinas and the significance of ren (human-relatedness) in Confucius (Kongzi). In addition, this book searches their different notions of humanity and relatedness to have a creative discourse for developing the concept of ethics of otherness as it concentrates on the formulation of ethical narratives in Levinas and Confucius (Kongzi). Thus, this book can open a possibility of building of ethics of otherness through reviewing ethical foundations of Levinas and Confucius (Kongzi) and discussing the meaning of otherness. ""At a time when our world struggles with cultural and personal differences, Seong offers a brilliant read of Levinas and Kongzi to give insight into the ethics of otherness. Especially engaging is his analysis of ren--'love to others through the awareness of otherness'--that is critical to Confucian morality in conversation with Levinas' conception of response-ability. Readers will find this intricate work important to the fields of philosophy, ethics, and theology. Seong's concise critique to Euro-American-centered cross-cultural approaches is a needed addition to ethical discourse."" --Pamela Lightsey, Vice President of Meadville Lombard Theological School, Chicago ShinHyung Seong is Assistant Professor of Soongsil University at Seoul, Korea.
