Marcel, Gabriel Ética diálogo proximidad Levinas, Emmanuel
Anuario Filosófico, 2005 (38), 633 - 655
Levinas considers Buber and Marcel “two great minds”. Their
philosophy of dialogue is not exhortation, because it expresses the
new ethic of proximity of man to man. No more experience of
others, but original and irreducible sociality, beyond any theory.
The incarnation and the metaproblematic in Marcel, in particular,
mean to Levinas the overcoming of the self towards the others.
Thus the being in Marcel is not the same as the traditional ontology
(the totality), but it is the new rationality of infinity: the self
awaked by the “thou”.
