This chapter explains the distinction between the notion of the idol and that of the icon. It evaluates the significance and meaning of the “death of God,” as announced by Nietzsche. Marion shows how and why God is beyond being and highlights the importance of the language of love. He provides a philosophical account of the erotic relation and the flesh. He also responds to the accusation of the theological turn and explains the context of this debate.

Keywords:   death of God, flesh, icon, idol, love, revelation, theological turn
