Levinas : une éthique asymétrique de l'autre horizontal

Abstract : It is, according to Levinas, dismantling the condition of being. Insofar as the relationship between self and the other is asymmetrical and not reciprocal, the subject leads a true life. The true life lies in living for the other and supporting all the others. The responsibility is exclusively bestowed upon the self. The self is therefore responsable for the other without anticipating reciprocity. This is the conversion towards the ethical subject that Levinas demands. The ethical self, before it becomes a "being", has to seek the meaning of life through human relationships questioning the right to "being". The purpose of this is for the true life and ultimately the true peace.
