The Other
Abstract: This essay considers “the other” in Section 2—Levinas with Confucius and Section 3—The Other, to conclude with a wrap-up. Section 2 is Confucius critically dialoguing with Levinas. Section 3 develops “the other.” The wrap-up stresses how important such intercultural dialogue is. Section 2 has five themes: “face” as the other; “ethics” as human cosmology; the “other” as respect-dialogues; reasoning as logic-playing; and failure as success persistent. Section 3 has five more themes, the other in respect, as togetherness, as inter-verb, as joy cosmic, and as Utopia now. Wrap-up looks forward.
