(p.60) Levinas in Latin America

Erin Graff Zivin

Fordham University Press

“Levinas in Latin America” focuses upon four types of ethical philosophy in Latin American and Latinamericanist thought: theological, literary, political, and deconstructive. First, Graff Zivin evaluates theologian Enrique Dussel’s assimilation of the work of Emmanuel Levinas into his own philosophy of Latin American liberation. Next, Graff Zivin juxtaposes Dussel’s Levinasianism with Doris Sommer’s ostensibly very different Levinasian approach to literary studies, focusing upon her analysis of Mario Vargas Llosa’s 1987 novel El hablador. The chapter then unpacks the debate over the relation between ethics and political militancy that surfaces in Argentina following the publication of philosopher Oscar Del Barco’s 2007 letter “No Matarás” [Thou Shalt Not Kill].

Keywords:   Del Barco, Oscar, deconstruction, Derrida, Jacques, Dussel, Enrique, ethics, Ejército guerrillero del pueblo (EGP), Levinas, Emmanuel, liberation theology, Vargas Llosa, Mario
