Postmodern Apologetics?

Chapter 5 explores Jean-Luc Marion’s religious phenomenology and his desire to safeguard God’s name from idolatry and univocity. It outlines Marion’s project, focusing in particular on his proposal of a phenomenology of givenness, the possibility of saturated phenomena, and an erotic reduction that leads to the possibility of an alternative type of knowledge, grounded in the heart instead of the mind. It shows how his philosophy proposes to introduce new religious phenomena into the realm of philosophy and to argue for their coherence, validity, and appeal. It also examines his recent work on Eucharist and sainthood.

Keywords:   Marion, givenness, saturated phenomenon, phenomenon of revelation, Eucharist, Saint
