This article concerned with Levinas's defense of Subjectivity of Descartes. Levinas establishes the base of his philosophy on Cartesian "cogito" and he is influenced by Husserl. He, like Descartes, considers the content of Cogito and reaches to idea of Infinity (God) and then articulates it in terms of concepts such as "Other". He against Descartes believes that place of God is in ethics not in metaphysics. But he has not agreement on this issue with Descartes. We have been tried to show that Levinas is a Cartesian because he accepts the cogito and idea of infinity (God).
