Marguerite La Caze & Magdalena Zolkos (eds.), Contemporary Perspectives on Vladimir Jankélévitch: On What Cannot be Touched (Lexington: 2019)

CONTRIBUTIONS BY: Giulia Maniezzi, José Manuel Beato, Marguerite La Caze, Tim Flanagan, Aaron T. Looney, Francesco Ferrari, Andrew Kelley, Magdalena Zolkos, Clovis Salgado Gontijo, and Paul Atkinson. 

Contemporary Perspectives on Vladimir Jankélévitch: On What Cannot Be Touched performs a cross-disciplinary theoretical analysis of the philosophy of Vladimir Jankélévitch. An international group of contributors, including both established and emerging scholars, engage with his writings from diverse disciplinary angles and consider his importance for contemporary political and cultural contexts. Edited by Marguerite La Caze and Magdalena Zolkos, the collection provides a holistic and multi-perspectival approach to Jankélévitch’s writings, one that illuminates nuanced and complex connections across the five sub-fields of philosophy to which Jankélévitch contributed: moral philosophy, virtue theory, metaphysics, philosophy of music, and philosophy of religion. The book addresses different aspects of and problems in Jankélévitch’s philosophy, with all chapters unified by a preoccupation with the motif of intangibility—that which cannot be touched.
