Description:

Jean-Luc Marion: The Essential Writings is the first anthology of this major contemporary philosopher's writings. It spans his entire career as a historian of philosophy, as a theologian, and as a theoretician of "saturated phenomena." This "reader" has a long introduction, written by the editor, that seeks to situate Marion in the history of modern philosophy, especially phenomenology, as well as shorter introduction to each section of the anthology. This book enables professors and teachers to teach Jean-Luc Marion by setting just the one book, and the long general introduction allows students to get up to speed with phenomenology in order to read Marion without having to take preliminary courses in Husserl and Heidegger.
