We examine some of the psychological\, social and political aspects in the work of ethicist and philosopher Emmanuel Levinas\, in conjunction with some of his contemporaries including Heidegger\, Sartre and Martin Buber. Levinas’ concepts of treating others ethically\, with compassion and empathy are rooted in his deep connection to the Other\, which carries a sense of moral authority and relationship to the world beyond the ego. \nLearning Objectives:  \n\nDescribe two key concepts in the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas and their application to psychotherapy;\nGive an example of how to apply Levinas’ concepts to work with couples and/or families.\n\nRabbi Tal Sessler\, Ph.D.\, has taught at the New School for Social Research in NY\, and is the author of three books in continental philosophy and modern Jewish identity\, including Levinas and Camus: Humanism for the 21st Century and Leibowitz and Levinas: Between Judaism & Universalism.
