Heidegger, Levinas, And The Feminine
     

Heidegger, Levinas, And The Feminine

by Andrea Conque Johnson
 
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.

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.
