Emmanuel Lévinas: per una società senza tirannide

The article shows how Lévinas went so far as to found a heteronomous ethics, against which obedience to the law emerges as a guarantee of freedom in opposition to tyranny. The constructive part of his discourse presupposes the criticism of western philosophy - seen as akin to tyranny - and the demolition of Kant’s principle of autonomy, whose ethics couldn’t stand the experience of twentieth century totalitarianism.
