Summary
"Two of the most creative and compelling thinkers of the second half of the twentieth century, Maurice Blanchot and Emmanuel Levinas first encountered each other in the 1920s and began a friendship that was to span over seven decades. Their subsequent exchanges of ideas and shared concerns, as well as their significant differences and influence on one another, have profound implications for the work of each. Encountering the Other represents the most sustained analysis to date of the intersections of structure and content in Blanchot and Levinas's most representative and complex works."--Jacket
