In the aptly titled The Call and the Response, renowned philosopher and theologian Jean-Louis Chrétien revisits a favorite theme: how human life is shaped by the experience of call and response, explored using art as a context.

For Chrétien, art is about acts in response to what the artist sees or hears and how these acts provoke responses from viewers. Deeply spiritual and intellectual without being academic, his arguments are unique, in both style and content.

Jean-Louis Chretien teaches at the University of Paris IV and is the author of many books, including The Unforgettable and the Unhoped For, Hand to Hand, and, as co-editor, Phenomenology and the "Theological Turn": The French Debate (all Fordham University Press). Anne A. Davenport teaches humanities at Boston College.

Editorial Reviews

...Chretien is to be credited in his work overall and in The Call and the Response specifically for greatly promoting the interdisciplinary outreach for phenomenology in an age where it has been overshadowed by the looming prescence of postmodern and post-structural thought.
