Si Marx fascine tant les philosophes, c'est peut-être parce qu'il a si vigoureusement dénoncé l'illusion de "la philosophie", le "discours de los angeles mauvaise abstraction", toujours idéaliste même sous des dehors matérialistes, et toujours stérile malgré sa grandiloquence.
Jean Yves leloup nous suggest ici deux lectures magistrales de deux géants de l. a. tradition occidentale : Nietzsche, l'athée et Maître Eckhart, le théologien -mystique.
Il tente de remettre "à lendroit" un texte de Nietzsche, ECCE HOMO, souvent cité pour justifier tous les athéismes. Leloup montre que le dieu en lequel Nietzsche voyait une "antithèse de l. a. vie" n'a rien à voir avec le dieu des Evangiles qui est au contraire une puissance de vie et de libération, une claire lumière par laquelle le monde est vu. L'auteur, avec Maître Eckhart, nous entraine ensuite au-delà des contraires, au delà même de Dieu et de tous les Absolus que nous imaginons, vers notre essentielle et silencieuse liberté. ..

Indeed, in many ways it now looks as if Levinas were the hidden king of twentieth-century French philosophy. Such are the pleasing ironies of history. It is a reflection of Levinas’s growing importance that philosophers with a background in analytic philosophy and American pragmatism such as Hilary W. Putnam, Richard J. 16 It is our hope that this Cambridge Companion will consolidate, deepen and accelerate the reception of Levinas in the English-speaking world and along its edges. In the selection of essays, we have sought a balance between the more usual phenomenological or Continental approaches to Levinas’s work and more analytic approaches, the ambition being to shun that particular professional division of labour.
What Heidegger seeks to do in Being and Time, once again in the spirit rather than the letter of Husserlian intentional analysis, is to identify the basic or a priori structures of Dasein. These structures are what Heidegger calls ‘existentials’, such as understanding, stateof-mind, discourse and falling. For Levinas, the basic advance and advantage of Heideggerian ontology over Husserlian phenomenology is that it begins from an analysis of the factual situation of the human being in everyday life, what Heidegger after Wilhelm Dilthey calls ‘facticity’.
3 First published in 1964, nothing remotely comparable to Derrida’s brilliant essay, ‘Violence and Metaphysics’, was published on Levinas during the next decade. 5 The situation began to change, and change rapidly, from the early to the mid-1980s. The reasons for this are various. First and foremost, the word ‘ethics’, which had either been absent from intellectual discussion, or present simply as a term of abuse reserved for the bourgeoisie in the radical anti-humanism of the 1970s, once again became acceptable.
