Symposium 14 (2):133-159 (2010)

The article examines the messianic idea in philosophical works of Emmanuel Levinas. It analyzes the continuities and discontinuities between the views of Levinas and philosopher Franz Rosenzweig, and explores the implications of their messianic conception. It suggests that Levinas has offered a conception of messianic thinking as philosophy rather than of messianic philosophy in his Talmudic readings.
