Philosophy to Its Limit

Philosophy to Its Limit

(p.11) 1 Philosophy to Its Limit
The Wedding Feast of the Lamb

Emmanuel Falque

, George Hughes
Fordham University Press

This chapter argues that in doing “philosophy to its limit” there will always be the residue of the body as there will be a Chaos and Tohu-Bohu. So, we can head toward the limit of the phenomenon as we make our way to the threshold of a bodying life capable of engendering what is in our true humanity. Paul Ricoeur underlines that “each work responds to a determinate challenge”—a notion that could very well describe the relation to the author's previous books of what he undertakes here. “And what connects it to its predecessors seems to be less the steady development of a unique project than the acknowledgement of a residue left over by the previous work, a residue which gives rise in turn to a new challenge”.

Keywords:   body, Chaos, Tohu-Bohu, humanity, Paul Ricoeur, Emmanuel Falque, French philosophy, French philosophers, theology, bodying life
