Aspects of Alterity

Brian Treanor

Fordham University Press

Gabriel Marcel was not a “professional” philosopher and his philosophical legacy includes lectures, journal entries, and dramatic works in addition to more orthodox philosophical expression in essays. Of these various genres, Marcel was perhaps most pleased with his dramatic works, in which he felt he was able to express things for which the more rigid structures of philosophical language were inadequate. This chapter summarizes some of the significant elements in Marcel’s diverse and unsystematic work. It provides a general overview of the philosophy in question, but with special attention to those features that have a bearing on love, justice, or otherness.

Keywords:   Gabriel Marcel, dramatic works, alterity, love, justice, otherness
