Levinas's idea of ethics as a relation of responsibility to others has become highly influential. Simon Critchley proposes a dramatic new way of reading Levinas's work, and provides a less familiar, more troubling, account of it. He argues that Levinas's fundamental problem was the attempt to escape the tragic fatality of Heidegger's philosophy.

William Rees, Times Literary Supplement particularly important for our understanding of the philosopher's work

Times Literary Supplement a triumph

James Hatley, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews Online [a] remarkable and helpful rereading, or perhaps better put, dramatic rendering of Levinas' philosophical project

Mary Shanahan, History of Political Thought The Problem with Levinas is simply put, an excellent book. It is an enjoyable, dramatic and insightful read which far exceeds the expectations one might usually have of a published set of lectures. There is a clear train of thought throughout which is expressed with clarity and a dash of literary flair.
