About this product
- DescriptionIn The Visible and the Revealed, Jean-Luc Marion brings together his most significant papers dealing with the relationship between philosophy and theology. Covering the ground from some of his earliest writings on this topic to very recent reflections, they are particularly useful for understanding the progression of Marion's thought on such topics as the saturated phemen and the possibility of something like Christian Philosophy. The book contains his seminal pieces on the saturated phemen and on the gift, although the essays also explore more recent developments of his thought on these topics. Several chapters explicitly explore the boundary line between philosophy and theology or their mutual enrichment and influence. In one of the final pieces, The Banality of Saturation, Marion considers some of the most recent objections brought against his tion of the saturated phemen and responds to them in detail, suggesting that saturated phemena are neither as rare r as inflexible as often assumed. The work contains two chapters t previously available in English and brings together several other pieces previously translated but w difficult to find. For readers interested in the relation between the two disciplines, this is indispensable reading.
