Levinas and the Wisdom of Love: The Question of Invisibility
Directly challenging the prevailing interpretation, Corey Beals explores the ideas of twentieth-century philosopher Emmanuel Levinas's concept of love, love's relation to wisdom, and how love makes the Other visible to us. Distinguishing love from other types of wisdom, Beals argues that Levinas's"wisdom of love"is a real possibility, one which grants priority to ethics over ontology.

We can imagine thinking by the light of the moon or reflecting through indirect light. Our eyes do more than gaze.
They also weep, and we can see tears and see through tears, exposing us to a different vision of ethics. This is an image Taylor develops at a junction between Levinas and Derrida to help us see how closely these thinkers can cross paths.
2. Thematic Exposition of Levinas’ Philosophy
Beals aims at excising Derrida and other post-structuralist thinkers from Levinas to show that Levinas' thought is not an ethics of undecidability but rather provides a model for ethical decision making. Despite certain strengths, though, Beals' book cannot meet the challenge of visionary ethics. Writing to introduce, clarify, and redeem the humanism of Levinas' turn to ethics as first philosophy, Beals focuses on this key statement to argue for the 'achievability' 79 of ethics and politics within the
