KIERKEGAARD AND LÉVINAS - TWO MODELS OF DIALOGICAL ATTITUDE (Kierkegaard i Lévinas - dwa modele dialogicznosci)
Languages of publication
The main aim of the article is to present Kierkegaard and Lévinas' concept of dialogicity. The relationship between the two philosophers is an interesting but not well-known problem in Polish humanities. Kierkegaard asserts that authentic philosophy must have a dialogical form - by a maieutical self-irony one can experience a stratification of one's own self. Lévinas criticizes Kierkegaard's concept of the dialogue, meaning that it is limited by a lonely subject having an infinite discussion with his or her own self, which the French dialogist recognizes as usual egoism. In the paper, a detailed discussion between these two ideas is presented.
