The Philosophy of Extreme Responsibility

By Robert Gibbs

Eugene Borowitz, March 6, 1992

Robert Gibbs discusses Emmanuel Levinas's perspective on ethical responsibility. He states that the 'other' is where extreme responsibility begins and that we have a type of social solidarity, meaning that we are responsible not only for our actions, but also for the actions of others.
