    The Mensch article is excellent. I don’t know Levinas at all. The issue of projection or prospection is nicely discussed with a more America accent in Homo Prospectus ( ). There’s also Max Velmans’ work on projection, for a British voice. What Heidegger seems to be missing, by Mensch’s account, is the whole awareness of presence, in which the projected prospects of self are not accepted as constituting self such as Heidegger mistakes them for. In is only by being in presence, temporally, that we have prospects to project ourselves in and thus find ourselves reflected there. At least, that’s where Tallis ends up. What should I read of Levinas?
