Overview

Though this is not the first book written about
Martin Heidegger, nor will it be the last,
"Heidegger, Levinas, and the Feminine" offers a new
look, through a new lens. While many feminist
philosophers have continued to criticize Heidegger
and uplift Emmanuel Levinas, A. Conque Johnson avers
that, when we look more carefully, the case is
exactly the opposite.
A. Conque Johnson reconsiders the works of Martin
Heidegger and Emmanuel Levinas with a feminist focus.
Through a careful analysis of the placement of the
feminine in Heidegger and Levinas' works, alternative
readings are suggested to those given by previous
feminists and feminist philosophers. A. Conque
Johnson argues, in effect, for a Heideggerian model
for re-thinking sexual difference. In addition, a
'new' goal for femininism to work toward is offered,
one beyond the goals that have been in place thus far
and one based upon the philosophy of Martin Heidegger.
