Phenomenology and the Theological Turn

Full Product Description

Phenomenology and the "Theological Turn" brings together in a single volume the debate over Dominique Janicaud's critique of the "theological turn" of French phenomenology as represented by the works of Emmanuel Levinas, Paul Ricoeur, Jean-Lue Marion, Jean-Francois Courtine, Jean-Louis Chretien, and Michel Henry. According to Janicaud, these theologically oriented philosophers have subverted the classical orientation of phenomenology toward the "things themselves" in favor of a giving beyond all measure, and certainly beyond the measure of the phenomenological method. Marion and his colleagues seek to give phenomenological credentials to an absolute experience, an experience of the absolute, that is strictly religious and hence, Janicaud contends, outside the bounds of phenomenology's methodological strictures. In the second part, Courtine, Marion, Chretien, Henry, and Ricoeur address the possibility of a phenomenology of religion as a philosophical, not a theological, project.Their approach is premised on the idea that philosophical discourse can describe religious phenomena through a phenomenology of donation (givenness) that is able to describe religious phenomena without sacrificing their claim to absoluteness and irreducibility.
