On Hegelian Dialectic, Levinasian Infinite, And Bananas

Lol of the day: When talking about Hegelian dialectic in relation to Levinas' concept of the face of the other and the infinite concerning the necessary tension between the value of the individual and value of the institution, Dr. R. Wood states:

"Consider a 6'6" basketball player. He was so tall he could jump and get a quarter off the top of the backboard. But what is that without the institution of basketball -getting more bananas?"
