The mystery of being by Gabriel Marcel( Book )

122 editions published between 1950 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mystery of Being contains the most systematic exposition of the philosophical thought of Gabriel Marcel, a convert to Catholicism and the most distinguished twentieth-century exponent of Christian existentialism. Its two volumes are the Gifford lectures which Marcel delivered in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1949 and 1950. Marcel?s work fundamentally challenges most of the major positions of the atheistic existentialists (Sartre, Beauvoir, Camus), especially their belief in an absurd, meaningless, godless universe. These volumes deal with almost all of the major themes of Marcel?s thought: the nature of philosophy, our broken world, man?s deep ontological need for being, our incarnate bodily existence, primary and secondary reflection, participation, being in situation, the identity of the human self, intersubjectivity, mystery and problem, faith, hope, and the reality of God, and immortality
Being and having : an existentialist diary by Gabriel Marcel( Book )

98 editions published between 1935 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,922 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Part of Marcel's 'metaphysical diary' and particularly valuable in showing how the major distinctions within which his thought has been moving germinated and developed. It is, I think, the most important single source of understanding Marcel's own viewpoint ... Not the least of this book's advantages is the fact that it includes many references to other thinkers who have influenced Marcel. In short, it affords an unusual and first-hand disclosure of a thinker's own self-understanding ... his thought, to my mind is deeply seminal and evocative, full of fresh statement and surprising insight, while never assertive or 'dogmatic'." [Roger Hazelton]
Man against mass society by Gabriel Marcel( Book )

89 editions published between 1951 and 2008 in 4 languages and held by 1,537 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Creative fidelity by Gabriel Marcel( Book )

68 editions published between 1940 and 2002 in 4 languages and held by 1,472 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of lectures and essays was regarded by Gabriel Marcel as the best introduction to his thought. Outstanding in the richness of its analyses and in its application of Marcel's "concrete approach" to philosophical problems, Creative Fidelity not only deals with the perennial Marcellian themes of faith, fidelity, belief, incarnate being, and participation, but includes chapters on religious tolerance and orthodoxy and an important critical essay on Karl Jaspers." "Known in this country as a Christian existentialist, Marcel preferred to be called a "neo-Socratic", a label suggesting the dialogical, unfinished nature of his speculations. He may best be described as a reflective empiricist." -- Jacket

Philosophy is presented here as a search of truth, but a truth which by its very nature cannot be a human possession and therefore should not be treated as something one has. Rather, truth belongs to the realm of the existent. But what is the existent? Thus a certain restlessness permeates Marcel's search; the restlessness of the seeker who nostalgically longs for the peace and serenity offered by the security of a central anchorage
