The article explores the relationship of the philosophical works of Italian-born French philosopher and Talmudic commentator Emmanuel Levinas and Gabriel Marcel. It cites how their conception of the human being complicated their relationship. It states that Marcel proposed a kind of personalism that takes its bearings from an analysis of value and sacrality, while Levinas believes in ethical subjectivity.
