About this product
- DescriptionThis book represents a continuation of Jean-Luc Marion's work on givenness as a foundational concept. A former student of Jacques Derrida, Marion is kwn for his work in seventeenth-century French philosophy, for his theory of God without being, and for his reformulation of phemelogy. Marion's groundbreaking work on givenness is articulated through attentive readings in a striking array of philosophical texts. The four pieces collected here, based on the fall 2008 Richard Lectures at the University of Virginia, expand upon and go beyond the lines of Marion's previous work and exemplify the intersection of his own constructive brilliance with his talent and rigor as a historian of philosophy. Reengaging philosophers long central to Marion's own work (Husserl, Heidegger, Levinas) and highlighting the significance of lesser-kwn but decisive influences (Natorp, Rickert, Meing), these lectures will be valuable to readers interested in the ongoing conversation seeking to bridge the divide between Continental and analytic philosophies, particularly through the exploration of common points of origin. These pieces tackle some of the most pressing debates in contemporary European philosophy and offer students of Marion material to ponder as they seek to further understand his influences. Taken together, these essays form an important volume by a major figure in contemporary philosophy.
