Beyond the Verse Talmudic Readings and Lectures by Emmanuel Levinas, Gary D. Mole

This book brings together an important collection of essays by Emmanuel Levinas, a leading philosopher of the 20th century, dating from between 1969 and 1980. The book considers specific Jewish problems: exegetic methodology, points of Jewish doctrine, Jewish religious philosophy, and contemporary political and cultural issues. It also includes five Talmudic readings. The book will be of interest to readers throughout the wider philosophical and religious communities. These books are seminal works of the finest minds in Western thought, including Adorno, Badiou, Derrida, Heidegger and Larkin. They are works of such power that they changed the cultural mind when they were written and continue to resonate today - landmark texts in the fields of philosophy, literature, popular culture, politics and theology - strikingly designed, accessibly priced.


'The essays in Beyond the Verse...are split into three sections: Talmudic Readings, Theologies and Zionisms. Carried across their diverse concerns is an essential insight into the nature of religious language.'
Josh Cohen, Jewish Quarterly, July 2008
