A Critical Review Of Michael Purcell's Theological Development Of Levinas' Philosophy
In this article I will review critically Purcell's attempt to: (i) recognize a method within Levinas' writings; (ii) exploit possibilities in Levinas' philosophy for theological development, especially in relation to the theme of alterity; (iii) redeem the ontological ethically in terms of redefining the meaning of Being; and (iv) develop an ethical theology of the Trinity with the philosophy of Levinas. Further, the critical review will act as a suggestive piece upon Purcell's work, outlining areas in which this thought might be progressed, and identifying lacunae that needs to be addressed.
