Here Simmons illustrates how Levinas's anarchical politics has much to teach us about the tyranny of a politics practiced for its own sake and about a culture in which ego dominates political discourse. An-Archy and Justice is an important addition to our understanding of Levinas, as well as the politics of our age. (Cecil Eubanks, Louisiana State University). Dialogue, October 2007). The value of this book is that in it an introduction to the thought of Levinas and this thought's potential import for politics appear together, and flow into each other.

Levinas’s work is informed by his attempt to formulate a new ethical response towards other human beings in the light of the Holocaust. His proposal of an originary ethics, positing the primacy of the other, introduces the need of a serious reevaluation of the concepts of responsibility, substitution and transcendence.

Emmanuel Levinas (/ˈlɛvɪnæs/; French: ; 12 January 1906 – 25 December 1995) was a French philosopher of Lithuanian Jewish ancestry who is known for his work related to Jewish philosophy, existentialism, ethics, phenomenology and ontology. Emmanuelis Levinas (later adapted to French orthography as Emmanuel Levinas) was born in 1906 into a middle-class Litvak family in Kaunas, Russian Empire.

Emmanuel Levinas's phenomenologies of the face of the Other have opened new vistas for contemporary ethical thought, but their implications for political thought have remained largely unexplored. In An-Archy and Justice, William Simmons systematically examines Levinas's political thought from its foundations to its implications to fill this theoretical void. Levinas worked against the predominant egocentric traditions in Western philosophy, claiming that in order to respond concretely to all Others the ego must rely on political institutions, yet these institutions must always be held in check by the original ethical relationship with the Other. In his penetrating and insightful analysis of Levinas's work, Simmons argues that Levinas's philosophy provides a new foundation for political thought by grounding the liberal state on an anarchical ethics. An-Archy and Justice is a ground-breaking and thought-provoking analysis of a profoundly creative thinker.
