  3. Nancy Levene (2004). Levinas's Beginnings: Ethics, Politics, and Origins. The European Legacy 9 (1):43-54.
    It is commonplace in philosophy, political theory, and theology to speak of the other and the problem of the identity of the West. No one has done as much to foreground the language of the other in recent years as Emmanuel Levinas, whose works have sparked a renewed interest in ethics across the humanities.

  6. Nancy Levene (2001). Spinoza's Bible. Philosophy and Theology 13 (1):93-142.
    My essay explores the connections between Spinoza’s theory of biblical interpretation and his conception of prophecy, linking the two through what he calls “moral certainty.” The question of what prophecy conveys is connected to the question of how to read Scripture because readers are in a similar position to both the prophets, who attain sure knowledge of some matter revealed by God, and the audience of prophecy, who have access to this knowledge only through faith. Like prophets, readers are interpreters (...)
