(p.71) 3. Phenomenology
The Rigor of Things

Jean-Luc Marion

, Christina M. Gschwandtner
Fordham University Press

This chapter provides an introduction to and summary of all of Marion’s phenomenological work. It also gives an account of why he turned to phenomenology in the first place and what role he considers it to play philosophically. Marion explains the notion of the phenomenological reduction and the importance of the category of givenness. He responds to some of the common objections to his work (including those of Derrida and Ricoeur). He summarizes the notion of the gift and its phenomenological significance. The chapter presents the implications of a phenomenology of givenness for a notion of the self as recipient of the phenomenon. Marion also reviews the notion of the saturated phenomenon and unfolds its implications. He discusses his relation to the thought of Levinas, Henry, Lacan, and Heidegger.

Keywords:   adonné, gift, givenness, reduction, saturated phenomenon
