In the Self's Place the Approach of Saint Augustine by Jean-Luc Marion( )
8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,328 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
God without being : hors-texte by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )
57 editions published between 1981 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 944 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

Reduction and givenness : investigations of Husserl, Heidegger, and phenomenology by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )
7 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 462 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
The visible and the revealed by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )
9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 452 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
The erotic phenomenon by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )
11 editions published between 2006 and 2008 in English and held by 418 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

Prolegomena to charity by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )

"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

The idol and distance : five studies by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 304 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
In excess : studies of saturated phenomena by Jean-Luc Marion( Book )
7 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 301 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."--BOOK JACKET
