8. The Im/possibility of Peace

Show Summary Details


This chapter concludes by revisiting the question of peace, the issue which guides the research, and suggests that peace itself is well described, on Levinas's accounting, as a possible impossibility. It follows out this thought and examines its implications with respect to our hopes for, and calling to, peace, and to the possibility of a dialogue that opens us up upon the intrigue of ethics that is its very condition.

Keywords: Levinas; peace; dialogue; logos; dia-logos
