What happens with the thought, in which suddenly horror alieni breaks out? This question will be discussed in the context of (not only) Emmanuel Levinas’ philosophy. This papper is an attempt to approach several problems related with the philosophy of the Other, including the problem of separate world, anaesthesiological strategies of the subject, the close relationship between thinking and pleasure, autonomy as the principle of pleasure etc. Considering the main parts and motives of Levinas’ philosophy, this paper will try to reveal several controversies in this „difficult, contentious thinking“.
