Synopsis: Emmanuel Levinas’ Conceptual Affinities with Liberation Theology analyzes Levinas’ work in relation to two important liberation theologians, Gustavo Gutiérrez and Jon Sobrino, whose scholarship, like his, needs to be brought into greater contemporary debate about the subject’s encounter with the other. More specifically, this book argues that for Levinas, Gutiérrez, and Sobrino, commitment to the neighbor is the necessary context for «understanding» God. They posit the human other as the possibility of the subject’s subjectivity. To be human is to act with love toward one’s neighbor. Thus, the author articulates the possibility of reading Levinas’ philosophy as a revalidation of one of the truths of Christianity: the concern for the humanity of every human person as expressed in Christian theology in general and liberation theology in particular. In order to show the relevance of Levinas’ philosophy for Christian theology in general, the author discusses three Christian scholars, Enrique Dussel, Jean-Luc Marion, and Michael Purcell. Although they challenge some aspects of Levinas’ philosophy, they nevertheless see its significance for Christian theological anthropology. The discussion concludes by proposing Levinas’ philosophy and liberation theology’s turn to the neighbor as significant for addressing contemporary socio-political and ethnic conflicts in sub-Saharan Africa.

About the Author: The Author: Alain Mayama teaches at Philosophat Spiritain International Daniel Brottier, where he is the rector, and at Grand Séminaire Saint Augustin in Libreville, Gabon, Central Africa. He received his Ph.D. in systematic theology from Duquesne University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. His research interests include philosophy of religion, phenomenology, soteriology, christology, and liberation theology.
