The Idol and Distance

Full Product Description

Marked sharply by its time and place (Paris in the 1970s), this early theological text by Jean-Luc Marion ncverthcless maintains a strikingly deep resonance with his most recent, groundbreaking, and ever more widely discussed phenomenology. And while Marion will want to insist on a clear distinction between the theological and phenomenological projects, to read each in light of the other can prove illuminating for both the theological and the philosophical reader - and perhaps above all for the reader who wants to read in both directions at once, the reader concerned with those points of interplay and undecidability where theology and philosophy inform, provoke, and challenge one another in endlessly complex ways. 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 Hegcl and Nietzsche.- Adapted from the Translator's Introduction

The Idol and Distance by Jean-Luc Marion was published by Fordham University Press in February 2001. The ISBN for The Idol and Distance is 9780823220786.
