Interpreting Excess: Jean-Luc Marion, Saturated Phenomena, and Hermeneutics

£34.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Jean-Luc Marion's theory of saturated phenomena is one of the most exciting developments in phenomenology in recent decades. It opens up new possibilities for understanding phenomena by beginning from rich and complex examples such as revelation and works of art. Rather than being curiosities or exceptions, these "excessive" or "saturated" phenomena are, in Marion's view, paradigms. He understands more straightforward phenomena, such as the objects of the natural sciences, as reduced and impoverished versions of the excess given in saturated phenomena. Interpreting Excess is a systematic and comprehensive study of Marion's texts on saturated phenomena and their place in his wider phenomenology of givenness, tracing both his theory and his examples across a wide range of texts spanning three decades.

Condition: Dustjacket shelfworn, corner bumped and slightly torn and creased, generally scuffed; boards corner bumped. Pages clean and clear and binding tight.
