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.

Review quote

"The first major anthology of selections from many of Marion's most important writings, covering a wide range of his work in many different areas: history of philosophy (especially Descartes), phenomenology, theology, philosophy of religion. What makes the collection also particularly valuable are Kevin Hart's excellent introductions, both to Marion's work overall and to each particular area of his writings. Hart's introductions are introductions in the best sense of that term: They prepare the reader, awake interest, provide context, clarify difficulties, raise questions, and especially invite the reader into the texts themselves. This collection will be eminently useful for the classroom, but will also prove a valuable introduction to Marion's work for the individual reader." Christina M. Gschwandtner, University of Scranton
