Reexamining Emmanuel Levinas's essays on Jewish education, Claire Elise Katz provides new insights into the importance of education and its potential to transform a democratic society, for Levinas's larger philosophical project. Katz examines Levinas's "Crisis of Humanism," which motivated his effort to describe a new ethical subject. Taking into account his multiple influences on social science and the humanities, and his various identities as a Jewish thinker, philosopher, and educator, Katz delves deeply into Levinas's works to understand the grounding of this ethical subject.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The great achievement of Claire Katz's new book, Levinas and the Crisis of Humanism, is to explain the meaning of Levinas's ethics in a way that makes it relevant for everyday life without either simplifying it or resorting to the paraphrase that is so often the pitfall of Levinas scholarship. . . . Katz's book succeeds in transmitting a deep sense of how Levinas's philosophy is important and relevant in a world in crisis. * Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews *
[I]n addition to its excellent readings of many texts and its helpful contextualizing of Levinas's project, Katz's book is a very good one indeed and one to be highly recommended. * AJS REVIEW *
