Levinas's Philosophy of Time free pdf Over the course of six decades, Emmanuel Levinas developed a radical understanding of time. Like Martin Heidegger, Levinas saw the everyday experience of synchronous time marked by clocks and calendars as an abstraction from the way time functions more fundamentally. Yet, in a definitive break from Heideggers analysis of temporality, by the end of his career Levinass philosophy of time becomes the linchpin for his argument that the other person has priority over the self. For Levinas, time is a feature of the selfs encounter with the face, and it is his understanding of time that makes possible his radical claim that ethics is first philosophy.
