Abstract

The philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas provides a non-Cartesian description of human subjectivity which differs from other poststructuralists. Levinas's subject is pre-volitionally responsible. This article is intended to be a prolegomenon for psychologists interested in developing notions of theory and praxis from Levinas's work on the self qua subjectivity. It introduces some of the necessary concepts needed to understand Levinas's work. Possible areas for psychological investigation, in light of Levinas's work, are offered.
