In the Direction of Height

Light of Truth

“Labour […] already requires discourse and consequently the height of the other irreducible to the same, the prese-nce of the Other. There is no natural religion; but already human ego-ism leaves nature by virtue of the human body raised upwards, commi-tted in the direction of height. This is not its empirical illusion but its ontological production and ineffaceable testi-mony.”

E. Levinas
