By virtue of the originality and depth of its thought, Emmanuel Levinas's masterpiece, Totality and Infinity: An Essay on Exteriority, is destined to endure as one of the great works of philosophy. It is an essential text for understanding Levinas's discussion of "the Other," yet it is known as a "difficult" book.

"The aim of Mensch’s commentary is clear: to help students follow the complex arguments and subtle phenomenological analyses that pervade Levinas’ major work, Totality and Infinity. While this task is in many ways fulfilled (by providing, for example, helpful background information on Levinas’ relationship to Heidegger and Husserl), the work also has much to offer specialists within the phenomenological tradition.Positioning his analysis of Totality and Infinity both historically and analytically, Mensch’s work presents a clear portrait of Levinas’ overall aims, as well as detailed analysis of his major themes and his unique conceptual armature (e.g., eros, the face, desire). After a preface and introduction that are largely focused on the relationship between Levinas’ and Heidegger’s respective phenomenologies, the rest of the book’s twelve chapters provide detailed commentary that guides readers through the central movements of Totality and Infinity." --Graduate Faculty Philosophy Journal
