- AbstractA View from the Bridge: the Correlative betweenArthur Miller's Ethics and Levinasian PhilosophyYoon, Hee-Uhk (Yeungnam University)This play proceeds in two diverged ways: the exclusion of the otherthrough sexual distortion and that through the violence of homogeneoussociety. Miller not only handles Eddie's violence against the other inflamedby his distorted desire through the relationship between Katherine andRodolpho but also describes distrust, whistle-blowing, and betrayal amonglongshoremen intensified by an upsurge of illegal immigrants throughMarco. Though the two-pronged stories seem to develop separately, theyall center upon beholding the other as a threatening object.
In this play Miller discloses how through his distorted sexual-egotismEddie regards the other not as an object of hospitality but as that ofexclusion. Miller shows that the contemporary society intends to excludethe other by seeing it as a foreign entity who cannot be homogenized intothe oneness. He criticizes that the forceful attempt to assimilate the otherinto the same worsens the human condition of modern society at once anddestroys ethical responsibility for a better society.
Miller's diagnosis of illness of modern society goes in parallel with thatof Levinas whose philosophy questions the priority of the same over theother in modern society. In that respect, this paper aims to address itselfto the problem of the same and the other through the correlative betweenMiller's ethics and Levinasian philosophy.
