Death of Kumaré Theology
A Few weeks ago I was introduced to a fascinating documentary, directed by and starring Vikram…
waterwasntbuilt said: I know you dig Marion, but are you at all troubled by the way that he seems to double back on himself in defending the Catholic institution as ultimately being able to speak best about the God beyond Being?
In general, I’m actually much more interested in him as a philosopher than as a theologian. That being said, I think that hes hard to place. As a “French Catholic” hes pretty wide of any dogmatically conservative conception of Catholicism.
I think in general his precedence of Catholicism is a product of his strong distinction between philosophy/theology (possibility/actuality) which I find hugely problematic to begin with.
Also, I think he is relying upon the long view of tradition, in which Catholic Mysticism really held the only route to a God beyond Being for quite a few centuries (theologically speaking).
But that’s all I really have on that.
