In the Presenter's Words
Within the ethos of the social world, we encounter what Levinas called “the face of the other.” The other's face, for Levinas, is an appeal, a call to action. This presentation focuses on the “second person” perspective -- which is put into play when we address each other as subjects -- is a way of seeing in which we as observers have a direct access to the meaning of others’ experiences without having to rely on verbal communication. This is especially important when others are unable to speak for themselves; but, it is nonetheless a valuable “tool” in all health care contexts. It consists of the aptitude that we all have as living persons to engage directly with others, to perceive meaning directly in human expression, and to be able to grasp intuitively what the other needs from us.
