For neuroscience, cognition informed by moral sense is experienced viscerally, somatically, in ways that, to use the vocabulary of the ethical philosopher Emmanuel Levinas, are undeclinable, prior to freedom, and primordial.
For Levinas, as read by Loureiro, the self "always already" manifests an "undeclinable obligation to respond to 'an absolutely heteronomous call'" (7)--what he later refers to as an obligation to the other, an obligation that does not reveal itself as much in the said as in the saying, "a saying prior to anything said" (7).
