Every philosophy aims at capturing the "ungraspable." In his original way, Levinas too is in search of the "indiscernible." His epistemology, brought into focus in Totality and Infinity, already emerges in Time and the Other, one of his first books. My neighbor's face is Signification itself. "For my neigbor" is the key to the enigmatic formulations "to be otherwise" and "to say otherwise." Time and the bonds with one's fellowmen suggest, in a very subtle way, how to make the move from ethics to metaphysics, thereby finding the "trace," or the "sign" in what is perhaps the essence of the Jewish concept of Reshimu.
