Emmanuel Levinas and Depth Psychology: The Trace of the Face of God

The Torah commands us to welcome the stranger, care for the widow and orphan and feed the hungry. Emmanuel Levinas incorporated those commandments to protect the “other” — on society’s margins and within ourselves — into his ethical philosophy, as did Carl Jung in his psychology of the unconscious. Both postulated that in the “other,” most alien from who we think we are and from our perceptions of the world, we may encounter the trace of the face of God. We will study primary texts and enter into a dialogue to help us integrate “difference” into our world and ourselves.
