Aspects of Alterity: Levinas, Marcel, and the Contemporary Debate


Okładka książki: Aspects of Alterity: Levinas, Marcel, and the Contemporary Debate


Brian Treanor. Aspects of Alterity: Levinas, Marcel, and the Contemporary Debate. New York. Fordham University Press, 2006. ISBN 9780823226849

“Aspects of Alterity provides a nuanced and wonderfully lucid account of the problem of otherness. By way of careful reading of Levinas, Marcel, and their inheritors, Treanor compellingly argues that an absolute other can issue no call nor even be understood as other. Instead, Treanor points us to a relative otherness, one that is still truly other but with whom relations are actually possible.”

Jewish Bialystok and Its Diaspora


Okładka książki: Jewish Bialystok and Its Diaspora


Rebecca Kobrin. Jewish Bialystok and Its Diaspora. Indiana University Press. Bloomington, 2010. ISBN 978-0-253-22176-6.

“An imaginative and original work. It offers an intriguing argument that in the first half of the twentieth century, diaspora Jewish identities were defined through a constant, dynamic process of interaction between the place of origin and the several sites of immigration.”
                                                                            Derek Penslar, University of Toronto

“Challenges and refines longstanding assumptions about Old World/New World dynamics generally and Jewish immigrants to America in particular… Original and smartly conceived, grounded in careful, extensive research and thoughtful analysis.”
                                                                           Jeffrey Shandler, Rutgers University

Levinas and the Wisdom of Love


Okładka książki: Levinas and the Wisdom of Love


Corey Beals. Levinas and the Wisdom of Love : the Question of Invisibility. Waco, Texas. Taylor University Press, 2007. ISBN 978-1-932792-59-1

“Across a series of highly suggestive interpretations, Corey Beals patiently unfolds, term by term, Levinas’s revolutionary redefinition of philosophy as the wisdom of love at the service of love. Most strikingly und uniquely, he ponders whether smaller-scale communities are not more conducive to the wisdom of love owing to the increased visibility they afford. Beals ably provokes us to think through matters at the heart of Levinas scholarship with the seriousness they deserve.”

David S. Pacini. Through Narcissus’ Gloss Darkly : the Modern Religion of Conscience. New York. Fordham University Press, 2008. ISBN 978-0-8232- 2964-2

“Pacini’s book provides a very original, lively, and well-informed account of difficulties in the modern notion of conscience, which came to dominate philosophical perspectives of Christianity in the period from Hobbes through Rousseau and Kant. This volume is an excellent general study of a key topic in the development of modernity, and its provides insightful criticisms of Kant’s philosophy of religion in particular.”

A Short History of Medical Ethics


Okładka książki: A Short History of Medical Ethics


Albert R. Jonsen: A Short History of Medical Ethics. Publisher: Oxford University Press, USA; 1 edition (January 15, 2000), ISBN-10: 0195134559

"Analyzing both primary and secondary sources, Jonsen's summaries are crisp digests that provide a good introduction to the literary traditions of medical ethics. Jonsen highlights the ideas of certain Hippocratic, Roman, Arabic, French, Italian, and Prussian physicians, as well as the ideas in the writings of traditional Indian and Chinese doctors. Thanks to Jonsen who has provided a new era of more sophisticated historiography in medical ethics, the storytellers and practitioners of the new millennium can strive for even better stories and more morally adequate practices."
  Chester R. Burns, Medical Humanities Review, Spring 2000
