Levinas¿s first magnum opus, Totality and Infinity (1961), influenced in part by the dialogical philosophies of Franz Rosenweig and Martin Buber, presents a phenomenological analysis of the 'face-to-face' encounter with the Other. Central to the work is the claim that the Other is not known or comprehended as such, but calls into question and challenges the complacency of the self through Desire, language, and the concern for justice.
