Notes

Abstract: This thesis considers the potential relationship between phenomenology and theology by looking at the philosophies of Edmund Husserl and Jean-Luc Marion. Prima facie it seems any transcendental idealist system prohibits access to transcendent entities. Yet, by freeing idealist phenomenology from the restrictions of metaphysics and rethinking God not as an entity but as revealed in experience, one can develop a phenomenological theology. In the first chapter I explicate and defend Husserl�s phenomenology as a form of transcendental idealism. In the second chapter I look at Marion�s advance away from Husserl. Where Husserl�s reduction shows how things are given, Marion moves to a post-metaphysical position where the how of reduction points to the event or facticity of givenness, rather than to things given. Finally, in the third chapter I explore the theological implications of Marion�s phenomenology of givenness by emphasizing the role of �saturated phenomena� as an excess of intuition over intention, particularly the saturated phenomenon of revelation. I also defend Marion against critics by arguing that the paradox of saturated phenomena legitimately expands the limits of phenomenology while at the same time reinvigorating theology.
