"Readings of Difficult Freedom," North American Levinas Society and Société Internationale de Recherches Emmanuel Levinas, Toulouse, July 4-9, 2010.
First published in 1963, with a second edition appearing in 1976, Difficile Liberté is considered Levinas' most accessible book and constitutes an excellent introduction to his work: philosophy, Biblical and Talmudic commentary, and an educational mission. "Readings of Difficult Freedom" is the largest international conference ever devoted to Levinas and his work. For an entire week, more than 180 speakers from 41 countries will present and discuss the ideas presented in Difficult Freedom. In addition, during the entire conference week there will be lectures and debates in a number of cultural centers in Toulouse as well as screenings of movies and documentaries. The conference and events are all open to the public. Information and Registration : http://www.sirel-levinas.org. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
