    Art and Impowerment: Levinas, Nietzsche, and the Ethics of Literary Discourse.Henry McDonald - 2010 - The European Legacy 15 (4):439-465.
    This article draws on the profound affinities between the thought of Levinas and Nietzsche to argue that aesthetics plays a major role in Levinas's ethical philosophy. As in the case of Nietzsche, who called himself “the first tragic philosopher,” aesthetics gives reference to the tragic, yet affirmative content of Levinas's ethics. For both, what Levinas calls the “alterity,” or otherness, of art and literature is located not in an ontological or conceptual “beyond”—in a “spiritual” dimension “which sets itself up as (...)

What characterizes this modernist tradition of aesthetics is its valorization of language as a (...)

    The Ontological Turn: Philosophical Sources of American Literary Theory.Henry McDonald - 2002 - Inquiry: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Philosophy 45 (1):3-33.
    The most important sources of contemporary American literary theory are neither the linguistics-based movement of French structuralism, as the term 'poststructuralism' implies, nor a 'modernity' that has been superseded, as the term 'postmodernism' implies, but rather a modernist tradition of aesthetics shaped by eighteenth- and early nineteenth-century German romanticism and idealism, movements that culminated in the work of Heidegger during the Weimar period between the World Wars and afterward, exercising an increasingly dominant influence on French theorists after World War II, (...)
