About this product
- DescriptionWords of Life is the sequel and companion to Phemelogy and the Theological Turn, edited by Dominique Janicaud, Jean-Francois Courtine, Jean-Louis Chretien, Michel Henry, Jean-Luc Marion, and Paul Ricoeur. In that volume, Janicaud accuses Levinas, Henry, Marion, and Chretien of veering from phemelogical neutrality to a theologically inflected phemelogy. By contrast, the contributors to this collection interrogate whether phemelogy's proper starting point is agstic or atheistic. Many hold the view that phemelogy after the theological turn may very well be true both to itself and to the phemelogical things themselves. In one way or ather, all of these essays contend with the limits and expectations of phemelogy. As such, they are all concerned with what counts as proper phemelogy and even the very structure of phemelogy. None of them, however, is limited to such questions. Indeed, the rich tapestry that they weave tells us much about human experience. Themes such as faith, hope, love, grace, the gift, the sacraments, the words of Christ, suffering, joy, life, the call, touch, listening, wounding, and humility are woven throughout the various meditations in this volume. The contributors use striking examples to illuminate the structure and limits of phemelogy and, in turn, phemelogy serves to clarify those very examples. Thus practice clarifies theory and theory clarifies practice, resulting in new theological turns and new life for phemelogy. The volume showcases the work of both senior and junior scholars, including Jean-Luc Marion, Jean-Yves Lacoste, Kevin Hart, Anthony J. Steinbock, Jeffrey Bloechl, Jeffrey L. Kosky, Clayton Crockett, Brian Trear, and Christina Gschwandtner-as well as the editors themselves.
