Title: The Core of my Opposition to Levinas
Subtitle: A Clarification for Richard Rorty
Author(s): VISKER, Rudi
Journal: Ethical Perspectives
Volume: 4 Issue: 3 Date: Octobre 1997
I should like to thank Professor Rorty for the care that he took in replying to my question and for kindly remembering that we had a similar discussion before. Although I do not recall all the details of that exchange1, I remember leaving him as puzzled as I am now by his renewed impression that my resistance to part of his work has a Levinasian provenance. Hence I could only welcome the invitation by the editors of Ethical Perspectives to include in this issue an English translation of a recent piece in which I tried to clarify my resistance to Levinas.
