God without being : hors-texte by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

69 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 968 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jean-Luc Marion advances a controversial argument for a God free of all categories of Being. Taking a characteristically postmodern stance, Marion challenges a fundamental premise of both metaphysics and neo-Thomist theology: that God, before all else, must be. Rather, he locates a "God without Being" in the realm of agape, of Christian charity or love"--Pub. website

The idol and distance : five studies by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

44 editions published between 1977 and 2010 in 5 languages and held by 577 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In both his theological and his phenomenological projects Marion's central effort to free the absolute or unconditional (be it theology's God or phenomenology's phenomenon) from the various limits and preconditions of human thought and language will imply a thoroughgoing critique of all metaphysics, and above all of the modern metaphysics centered on the active, spontaneous subject who occupies modern philosophy from Descartes through Hegel and Nietzsche."--Jacket
Reduction and givenness : investigations of Husserl, Heidegger, and phenomenology by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Through careful, historically informed analysis of groundbreaking phenomenological texts by Husserl and Heidegger, Jean-Luc Marion argues for the necessity of a "third" phenomenological reduction that concerns what is fully implied but left largely unthought by the phenomenologies of both Husserl and Heidegger: the unconditional "givenness" of the phenomenon
Prolegomena to charity by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

20 editions published between 1986 and 2007 in 3 languages and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These essays by the French Catholic philosopher Jean-Luc Marion touch on aspects of love and self-love and the paradoxes that arise when one attempts to weigh private interest against the social good. In presenting his arguments, Marion draws on the classical tradition, on the New Testament and early Christian texts, and on the work of Continental philosophers such as Nietzsche and Sartre."--Jacket
In excess : studies of saturated phenomena by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

26 editions published between 2001 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Excess: Studies of Saturated Phenomena is the third book in Jean-Luc Marion's phenomenological trilogy that includes Reduction and Givenness and Being Given. Marion renews his argument for a phenomenology of givenness, with penetrating analyses of the phenomena of event, idol, flesh, and icon." "With an eye turned more explicitly than ever before to hermeneutical dimensions of the debate, Marion masterfully draws together issues emerging from his close reading of Descartes and Pascal, Husserl and Heidegger, Levinas and Henry. Concluding with a revised version of his response to Derrida, In the Name: How to Avoid Speaking of It, Marion powerfully re-articulates the theological possibilities of phenomenology."--Jacket
The visible and the revealed by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

22 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in French and English and held by 438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 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 phenomenon and the possibility of something like 'Christian Philosophy.' The book contains his seminal pieces on the saturated phenomenon 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 notion of the saturated phenomenon and responds to them in detail, suggesting that saturated phenomena are neither as rare nor as inflexible as often assumed. The work contains two chapters not previously available in English and brings together several other pieces previously translated but now difficult to find. For readers interested in the relation between the two disciplines, this is indispensable reading."--Jacket
Being given : toward a phenomenology of givenness by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

9 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 433 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Along with Husserl's Ideas and Heidegger's Being and Time, Being Given is one of the classic works of phenomenology in the twentieth century. Through readings of Kant, Husserl, Heidegger, Derrida, and twentieth-century French phenomenology (e.g., Merleau-Ponty, Levinas, and Henry), it ventures a bold and decisive reappraisal of phenomenology and its possibilities. Its author's most original work to date, the book pushes phenomenology to its limits in an attempt to redefine and recover the phenomenological ideal, which the author argues has never been realized in any of the historical phenomenologies. Against Husserl's reduction to consciousness and Heidegger's reduction to Dasein, the author proposes a third reduction to givenness, wherein phenomena appear unconditionally and show themselves from themselves at their own initiative. Being Given is the clearest, most systematic response to questions that have occupied its author for the better part of two decades. The book articulates a powerful set of concepts that should provoke new research in philosophy, religion, and art, as well as at the intersection of these disciplines. Some of the significant issues it treats include the phenomenological definition of the phenomenon, the redefinition of the gift in terms not of economy but of givenness, the nature of saturated phenomena, and the question "Who comes after the subject?" Throughout his consideration of these issues, the author carefully notes their significance for the increasingly popular fields of religious studies and philosophy of religion. Being Given is therefore indispensable reading for anyone interested in the question of the relation between the phenomenological and the theological in Marion and emergent French phenomenology
The erotic phenomenon by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

10 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 425 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While humanists have pondered the subject of love to the point of obsessiveness, philosophers have steadfastly ignored it. One might wonder whether the discipline of philosophy even recognizes love. The word philosophy means "love of wisdom," but the absence of love from philosophical discourse is curiously glaring. So where did the love go? In The Erotic Phenomenon, Jean-Luc Marion asks this fundamental question of philosophy, while reviving inquiry into the concept of love itself. Marion begins his book with a critique of Descartes' equation of the ego's ability to doubt with the certainty that one exists--"I think, therefore I am"--Arguing that this is worse than vain. We encounter being, he says, when we first experience love: I am loved, therefore I am; and this love is the reason I care whether I exist or not. This philosophical base allows Marion to probe several manifestations of love and its variations, including carnal excitement, self-hate, lying and perversion, fidelity, the generation of children, and the love of God. Throughout, Marion stresses that all erotic phenomena, including sentimentality, pornography, and even boasts about one's sexual conquests, stem not from the ego as popularly understood but instead from love

Negative certainties by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

19 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in French and English and held by 283 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Connaître signifie connaître avec certitude des objets, donc, suivant les sciences : il n'y aurait de certitude qu'affirmative et scientifique. Le reste, ce qui se dit ailleurs, en philosophie ou littérature, n'apporterait aucune certitude. Voilà ce que nous tenons tous, spontanément, pour allant de soi. Ce livre veut le mettre en question. Car précisément une question, à condition qu'elle ait un sens, peut aboutir à une certitude, pourvu que nous comprenions pourquoi et comment elle doit rester sans réponse. Les questions sans réponse donnent aussi des certitudes, mais des certitudes négatives. Ainsi ne doit-il pas y avoir de réponse à la question sur la définition de l'homme - car définir l'homme aboutit toujours à en finir avec certains hommes. Ainsi la question de Dieu survit-elle à tout argument sur l'impossibilité de l'expérience de Dieu, précisément, parce que Dieu, par hypothèse, concerne ce qui nous reste impossible. Ainsi le don, et ce qui le confirme par redondance, le pardon et le sacrifice, n'admet-il aucune condition de possibilité, précisément parce qu'il transcende l'économie des échanges. Ainsi l'événement advient sans aucune prévision et contre toute attente, parce qu'il ne pourra jamais devenir l'objet d'une compréhension exhaustive, comme un objet ou un spectacle. Il se pourrait que ces certitudes négatives, qu'aucune théorie ou expérience à venir ne viendra corriger ou invalider, nous offrent infiniment plus de certitude que toute affirmation"--P.

Réduction et donation : recherches sur Husserl, Heidegger et la phénoménologie by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

25 editions published between 1989 and 2015 in French and Undetermined and held by 243 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Selon le mot de Heidegger, quand il s'agit de phénoménologie, la possibilité va au-delà de l'effectivité. Ce qui ne signifie pas seulement que le nouveau commencement de la philosophie qu'inaugurent les Recherches logiques ouvre à la "percée" de Husserl - penser le phénomène en tant qu'il se donne et comme il se donne -, mais aussi que la méthode de la réduction peut et doit se déployer jusqu'à son terme, sans aucune limite. Mais Husserl exerce la réduction à partir du seul Je transcendantal et exclusivement en vue de l'objectité de l'objet, au point de ne pouvoir vraiment penser la différence entre le mode d'être de l'objet et celui de la "région conscience". Heidegger radicalise au contraire la réduction à partir du Dasein, moins constituant qu'exposé au monde, et en vue de la question de l'être, au point que la différence ontologique devienne le phénomène par excellence. Mais, justement, l'analytique du Dasein atteint-elle jamais, du moins selon la stricte rigueur phénoménologique, l'être comme un phénomène? Produit-elle jamais la différence ontologique comme un donné véritable? On tente de démontrer que, de fait, Sein und Zeit n'y parvient pas - d'où son achèvement essentiel. Cette aporie indique pourtant aussi que la phénoménologie recèle une dernière possibilité : la réduction peut réduire non seulement l'objectité, mais encore la question de l'être. Au Je constituant, mais aussi bien au Dasein, peut succéder un interlocuteur plus originaire - celui même qu'interpelle la pure donation elle-même, celui qui se laisse interloquer par le donné en tant que tel. J.-L.M
In the self's place : the approach of Saint Augustine by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the Self's Place is an original phenomenological reading of Augustine that considers his engagement with notions of identity in Confessions. Using the Augustinian experience of confessio, Jean-Luc Marion develops a model of selfhood that examines this experience in light of the whole of the Augustinian corpus. Towards this end, Marion engages with noteworthy modern and postmodern analyses of Augustine's most "experiential" work, including the critical commentaries of Jacques Derrida, Martin Heidegger, and Ludwig Wittgenstein. Marion ultimately concludes that Augustine has preceded postmoder
