Levinas On The Ethical Dimension Of Language

Abstract: 
The relation between language and morality is usually described by focusing on the fact that what we say could be right or wrong. Emmanuel Levinas claims that the relation is much more fundamental in that language is essentially connected with morality (to use Levinas’s term).This paper shows the way in which Levinas, by distinguishing the said (Ie dit) from the saying (Ie dire), explores the basic relation according his otherregarding philosphy.Also the paper demonstrates that Levinasian reduction (reducing the said to the saying) is an original way to make the moral origin of language accessible.Finally, we indicate the importance and distinction of Levinasian approach to language as compared to approaches that do not take into account its other-regarding character.
