Ethical Hermeneutics Rationalist Enrique Dussel's Philosophy of Liberation by Michael D. Barber

The essence of Dussel's thought is presented through the concept of ethical hermeneutics which seeks to interpret reality from the viewpoint of what Emmanuel Levinas presents as the other - those who are vanquished, forgotten, or excluded from existent socio-political or cultural systems. Barber traces Dussel's development toward Levinas' philosophy through his discussion of the Hegelian dialectic and through the stages of Dussel's own ethical theory.


. . .this is a wonderful book and it should be read by all interested not just on Levinas's work but also on the more general question of the future of alterity in an age of philosophical homogenization and economically driven culturally hybridization. -- -Eduardo Mendieta * Stony Brook University * This trailblazing volume opens an ethical dimension of philosophical hermeneutics and offers a .... well argued, clear, and coherent... introduction to Dussel's `philosophy of liberation.
