I am the Truth

Full Product Description

A part of the "return to religion" now evident in European philosophy, this text represents the culmination of the career of a phenomenological thinker whose earlier works trace a trajectory from Marx through a genealogy of psychoanalysis that interprets Descartes's "I think, I am", as "I feel myself thinking, I am". In this work, Michel Henry does not ask whether Christianity is "true" or "false". Rather, what is in question here is what Christianity considers as truth, what kind of truth it offers to people, what it endeavours to communicate to them, not as a theoretical and indifferent truth, but as the essential truth that by some mysterious affinity is suitable for them, to the point that it alone is capable of ensuring them salvation. In the process, Henry inevitably argues against the concept of truth that dominates modern thought and determines, in its multiple implications, the world in which we live. Henry argues that Christ undoes "the truth of the world", that He is an access to the infinity of self-love, to a radical subjectivity that admits no outside, to the immanence of affective life found beyond the despair fatally attached to all objectifying thought.The Kingdom of God accomplishes itself in the here and now through the love of Christ in what Henry calls "the auto-affection of Life". In this condition, he argues, all problems of lack, ambivalence, and false projection are resolved.
