This text is the third in the phemelogical trilogy that includes Reduction and Givenness and Being Given . Engaging the vigorous debate in France and elsewhere that surrounded the release of earlier volumes, Marion renews his argument for a phemelogy of givenness, with penetrating analyses of the phemena of event, idol, flesh and icon. With an eye turned more explicitly than before to hermeneutical dimensions of the debate, Marion draws together issues emerging from his close reading of Descartes and Pascal, Husserl and Heidegger, Levinas and Henry. Concluding the work with a revised version of his respose to Derrida, In The Name: How to Avoid Speaking of It , Marion re-articulates the theological possibilities of phemelogy.
