DescriptionThis book is a concise presentation of the ideas and scope of a contemporary French thinker whose own works have not been widely translated and published into English. This study looks at the phenomenological work of 20th century French thinker Michel Henry (1922-2002). Not yet widely known to an English audience, his work has in recent years been attracting a growing readership among students of phenomenology as well as among those interested in the so-called "return of religion" since the last quarter of the 20th century. This study carefully considers the unfolding of a "new phenomenology" in Henry's work. In its various dimensions: in being situated within the Western philosophical tradition, especially in its relation to Heidegger's critique of onto-theology. In its dialogue with classic philosophies of the subject and interior life, in its relation to the question of language and the problem of representation; with regards to ethics, the problem of inter-subjectivity and contemporary philosophies of 'the other'; and finally, in terms of its possible contribution to Christian theological thinking today.
Contents1. (En)Countering Heidegger; 2. Phenomenology and Givenness; 3. Material Phenomenology; 4. Henry's Christianity; 5. Community, Time and 'the Call'.
