This article aims to explore the fruitful possibilities of dialogue between Levinas` ethics and feminism, by examining the two different approaches to Levinas` ethical project in feminist circles-Irigaray`s critical response and Guenther`s apologetic appropriation. With these connections in mind, this article first introduces some of the main themes of Levinas` ethical thought, such as the Other, Infinity, the face-to-face, responsibility, and then traces the concepts of the feminine, eros, fecundity, and the maternal in his philosophy. I then convey the rich and intricate texture of Irigaray`s critical discussion of Levinas. Irigaray attacks both Levinas` patriarchal view of eros and his concept of the feminine as means to reinforce traditional stereotypes. I closely examine Guenther`s feminist re-reading of Levinas` concept of responsibility. Unlike Irigaray, Guenther reads Levinas as a feminist ally. Guenther rewrites Levinas` ethical concepts through a feminist reading of two central figures in his work: hospitality and maternity. According to Guenther, Levinasian hospitality is the action of welcoming the stranger in one`s home without asking why he/she deserves it or what one will get in return. Guenther also shows that to be responsible is not only to welcome the stranger into one`s home, but to bear him/her in the flesh, despite the tremendous pain that one`s bearing might bring. Guenther`s reading of Levinas is in accordance with Levinas` framework of asymmetry in the human relationship, which rejects the traditional exchange of "give and take." After addressing the most contentious issues regarding Levinas` importance for contemporary feminism, I turn to Please Take Care of Mom, by Shin Kyung Sook, a Korean feminist novelist, in an attempt to move beyond Guenther`s feminist reading of Levinas and suggest a creative way of responding to the Other, namely through writing.
