Introduction Much has been written in the secondary literature about Levinas and art and about Levinas and literature more specifically. Unfortunately, given all their considerable virtues, these books are also hampered by a serious flaw, one that unhappily appears in all too much of the secondary literature on Levinas and art.
In this essay, I want to suggest a different route. The visual arts, I will contend, can offer a powerful but under-appreciated resource for inter-religious dialogue, stimulating genuinely new ways of seeing the Other. I will make my case for the hospitality of images through a re-reading of the Jewish philosopher Emmanuel Levinas. While Levinas can be sharply critical of the visual arts, at the same time a strong aesthetic vein runs through his work, which has been consistently obscured or overlooked by scholars. Exploiting such visual dimensions, I will read Levinas against the grain, suggesting ways in which art might meet the stringent demands of his ethical vision, and as such offer an ideal site for interfaith dialogue.

Gregory in his contribution to the debate initiated by the Journal of Literary Theory concerning the long-term relations between literature and ethics Gregory , In this article, we join Gregory and subsequent contributors in the effort to rethink the role of ethical criticism in the context of contemporary literary scholarship Rabinowitz ; Groeben ; Titzmann We wish to turn attention to an issue that has thus far been largely ignored in this debate: the role of postmodern criticism in shaping the new face of ethical criticism. In particular, we challenge the concept of empathy and the assumption that empathy is a fundamental element of ethical reading. The first three studies in the JLT controversy Gregory ; Rabinowitz ; Groeben share a prominent assumption: that postmodern thinking has turned its back on ethics. Indeed, the 20th-century legacy of critical thinking, highly influenced by the historical developments of this era — two world wars, a surge in capitalism, a technological revolution, the dynamic forces of globalization and mass immigration — brought a great measure of instability and uncertainty to the discourse of ethics.
