It calls for justice, he says, because the neighbor to whom saying is directed is always in the presence of a third party; it is always also a face for a third that stirs consciousness to move in the realm of phenomenality and obliges it to raise the question of equity and thus deﬁne an order of intelligibility. Ethics is always already philosophy. But how can Levinas maintain the priority of the ethical relation while allowing this mediation in saying, this “contradiction” by which saying turns to the sphere of representation even as it gives itself to the other?
But he also attends insistently to a critical difﬁculty for any meditation on peace. The essential point might be summarized in Blanchot’s Hegelian-inﬂected vocabulary of this period by noting that no exposure of and to the other can ever ultimately be held apart (that is, for more than the instant of a time outside time) from the mortal power of the negative at work in language. ” Blanchot’s reﬂections on Orpheus and Eurydice also tell the same story. At the scene of encounter, where before autrui we speak or we kill, death is surreptitiously entering the scene.
What we are left with is this second. There is the time of the word, there is the moment at which speech begins, lays bare the visage, says the encounter with the extreme and irreducible limit. ” It names what exceeds power, as we have seen, but also an exposure that remains, and the burden of this remainder, which is an ineffaceable ethical responsibility. ” When Blanchot states in “Humankind” that “man afﬁrms himself at that limit where possibility ceases: in the poverty, the simplicity of a presence that is the inﬁnite of human presence” (IC 132/194), he is describing the irreducible trace of an exposure.
