In the Self's Place: The Approach of Saint Augustine [Book Review]

Download Edit this record How to cite View on PhilPapers
In the Self's Place: The Approach of Saint Augustine presents Jean-Luc Marion's rethinking of the modern notion of the self by way of an original reading of Saint Augustine through the lens of a phenomenology of givenness. Here he tests the hermeneutic validity of concepts forged in his previous works. His goal is to show that the Confessiones are inscribed within the confessio, that love is an underlying epistemic condition of truth, and that God's call and our response to God are both gifts. Ultimately, Marion points us toward a conception of the self that is at once postmodern and very Augustinian.
