Proximity, Levinas, and the Soul of Law links the controversial ethical philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas to the common law legal tradition that has recently invigo-rated the idea of "the duty of care." Desmond Manderson argues that the ethicist and lawyer struggle with the same basic questions of why we should care for others and what responsibility really demands of us when we use the language of care, neighbourhood, and proximity.
