Toward a Fourth Reduction?

Toward a Fourth Reduction?

(p.21) Toward a Fourth Reduction?
After God

John Panteleimo Nmanoussakis

Fordham University Press

This chapter attempts a redefining of the phenomenological method as this has been developed mainly through three “reductions” represented by three thinkers whose work advanced phenomenological research in novel ways: Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, and Jean–Luc Marion. The discussion argues that a fourth reduction would strive to complete the preceding movements of reduction by rehearsing, retrieving, and repeating them. In some sense, a fourth reduction could be a corrective recapitulation of the transcendent, ontological, and dosological reductions. It presents what the basic principles of a fourth reduction might be by clarifying further the definition of the prosopon and its pertinence for a phenomenology of the experience of God.

Keywords:   Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, Jean–Luc Marion, fourth reduction, prosopon
