The issue explores the origins of otherness as a counterpoint to identity and will reflect on various meanings of Other: the other person as a source of moral responsibility in moral philosophy, the other as a threat in migration politics, the other as a non-human being (animal, but also alien), the other within the human body – both as an organism (viruses, bacteria, etc.) and a voice (demons, conscience, etc.)
The issue’s guest editor Viktoras Bachmetjevas is a philosopher with an interest in ethics, and specifically the thoughts of Emmanuel Lévinas and Søren Kierkegaard.
