The editor's long general Introduction situates Marion in the history of modern philosophy, especially phenomenology, and shorter introductions preface each section of the anthology. The entire volume will enable professors to teach Marion by assigning a single book, and the editor's introductions will make it possible for students to learn enough about phenomenology to read Marion without having to take preliminary courses in Husserl and Heidegger.
Jean-Luc Marion is The Andrew Greeley and Grace McNichols Greeley Professor at the University of Chicago Divinity School, Department of Philosophy, and Committee on Social Thought; Dominique Dubarle Chair of Philosophy at L'Institut Catholique de Paris; Professor Emeritus at the University of Paris IV's Sorbonne, and a member of the Ac...

Editorial Reviews

"The first major anthology of selections from many of Marion's most important writings, covering a wide range of his work in many different areas: history of philosophy (especially Descartes),phenomenology, theology, philosophy of religion. What makes the collection also particularly valuable are Kevin Hart's excellent introductions, both to Marion's work overall and to each particular area of his writings. Hart's introductions are introductions in the best sense of that term: They prepare the reader, awake interest, provide context, clarify difficulties, raise questions, and especially invite the reader into the texts themselves. This collection will be eminently useful for the classroom but will also prove a valuable introduction to Marion's work for the individual reader."
