Emmanuel Levinas altered twentieth-century European philosophy with a single idea: the Other. At the same time, postcolonial authors such as Franz Fanon, Edward Saïd, Gayatri Spivak, Homi Bhabha, and Enrique Dussel articulated a sense of the Other at the very heart of history, culture, and politics.
Here, Drabinski initiates the conversation between Levinas and postcolonial theory. Matters of history, language, race, and nationalism emerge as central to thinking in a global context.
