Our era is profoundly marked by the phenomenon of exile and it has become increasingly urgent to rethink the concept and our stance towards it. Permeated with references to the stranger, the other and exteriority, the philosophy of Emmanuel Levinas signifies towards a positive understanding of exile. This original and compelling book distills from Levinas' philosophy a wisdom of exile, for the first time shedding a positive light on the condition itself.
