- In All My Sons Miller highlights Joe Keller’s unethical crime that claimed twenty-one young pilots. Joe arguably has no viable connection with his world. He criticizes Joe’s unrelatedness and his irresponsibility for the other. In contrast to his father, Chris pursues an idealistic morality of brotherhood. Chris’s transcendental love for the other is pitted against his father’s narrow family-centricism. Chris’s ethics comes closer to Levinasian philosophy that stresses the hospitality of the other and absolute responsibility for the other.
Miller sees this world as a jungle existence as shown by Joe’s family-centered values and his distorted entrepreneurship. Levinas warns us of the reality of the world in which the other becomes a faceless face in the crowd and the death of somebody becomes a matter of indifference. Miller also shows a similar diagnosis that the absence of concernfulness for the other will result in tragic catastrophe in human society.
In this play Miller asserts that an individual should assume full responsibility for the other in terms of brotherhood as an active ethics. Interestingly enough, his ethics shares much in common with Levinas’s philosophy of otherness. In that aspect this paper explores the violence of the same and the forgetting of the other through Levinasian philosophy in this play.
