In this play Arthur Miller explores the tragic condition of human existence in which Willy``s ego ceaselessly seeks after the game of success and suffocates itself in a tautological way of identity. Willy``s stubborn pursuit of wrong dream even destroys Biff``s future and drives himself to suicide. Willy``s suicide is an act not of self-annihilation but of self-assertion of his view of success. Miller also reflects the world in which Willy puts himself in cutthroat competition and then imprisons himself in total isolation from the community. Levinas argues that this world is a web of a relation in which the other is reduced to the same and divested of its strangeness. In terms of Levinas``s idea of the conatus of beings, men are struggling with one another, each against all. Levinas warns us that the world in which the one dominates the other is a hostile world of economy in which the other is marginalized and forgotten. In that respect Miller``s description of Willy``s relation with his family and the ontological world can be more clearly explored through Levinasian ethics of otherness: conatus, the economy of the same, and the forgetfulness of the other.
