Summary/Abstract: The present monograph constitutes a theological reading of the thought of Emmanuel Levinas. The volume contains Levinas’s assessment of the contemporary intellectual and spiritual landscape of the West and an analysis of selected thoughts of the French philosopher — from the idea of creation, through atheism, freedom and guilt (or the original sin in theology), to the question of truth and revelation — and their comparison with analogous issues in Catholic theology. The final section presents his critique of Christian theology. It is a fundamental critique, questioning the rational foundations of this theology. It is this critique, as the author of this volume argues, that is most inspiring for a Catholic theologian.
