Time and the Other is an excellent introduction to Levinas; the recent lectures allow the reader to assess both the consistency of Levinas's vision, and the evolution of the religiosity of his discourse. - SubStance. Time and the Other contains a series of essays presented as lectures in 1946-47 at the College Philosophique in Paris, along with additional essays dealing with time, sociality, and ethics. This work represents, along with Existence and Existents, the first formulation of Levinas's own philosophy, later more fully developed in other works. Beginning with an analysis of existence without existents, Time and the Other then describes the origination of the subject, and moves through its encounter with another person.
