SOLD OUT – AMERICAN INSTITUTE FOR LEVINASSIAN STUDIES is pleased to announce its first seminar with Eric Gans PhD.

War and Peace, the Human Condition: Levinas and Generative Anthropology

Levinas’ masterwork Totality and Infinity begins with the notion of war as the “normal” human condition, a condition that corresponds to generative anthropology’s idea that human language and the sacred emerged to defer the violence resulting from our growing mimetic intelligence. Prof. Gans will show how Levinas’ key conception of “the infinite” that makes the face of the other an experience of strangeness and transcendence–and peace– is situated within the generative scene of human origin.
