The face-to-face relation (French: rapport de face à face) is a concept in the French philosopher Emmanuel Levinas’ thought on human sociality. It means that, ethically, people are responsible to one-another in the face-to-face encounter. Specifically, Levinas says that the human face “orders and ordains” us. It calls the subject into “giving and serving” the Other.
