The Rigor of Things

Jean-Luc Marion

, Christina M. Gschwandtner
Fordham University Press

In this chapter Marion discusses the problematic connotations of the term “value” especially when associated with God or morality, because “value” always depends on the evaluator. He refuses the titles of “intellectual” or Catholic “philosopher” and explains why. The chapter discusses in what way our present situation is one of nihilism and how one should respond to it. Marion argues that God is not in retreat and Catholicism not in crisis. He ends with a discussion of the relationship between Christianity and Judaism and a brief evaluation of the recent papacies.

Keywords:   Catholicism, intellectual, Judaism, Lustiger (Cardinal Jean-Marie), nihilism, value
