JP2 Lecture: Jean-Luc Marion, Academie Française/University of Chicago “The Phenomenological Openness of Revelation”

Events

The Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (Angelicum) sponsors several events each year and previously did not have a unified source of information about university events. The purpose of the Angelicum Events Calendar is to serve as a method for publicizing University-sponsored events that have been approved and scheduled.

Eventi

La Pontificia Università di San Tommaso d'Aquino (Angelicum) sponsorizza migliaia di eventi ogni anno. Negli scorsi anni non vi era una fonte unificata di informazioni sugli eventi universitari. Lo scopo del Calendario eventi dell'Angelicum è quello di servire come mezzo per la pubblicità degli eventi sponsorizzati dall'Università che sono stati approvati e pianificati.

JP2 Lecture: Jean-Luc Marion, Academie Française/University of Chicago “The Phenomenological Openness of Revelation”

Nov 18 at 16:30 - 18:15

 

The meaning of the word “Revelation” remains questionable, for historical and conceptual reasons. The most obvious issue focuses on whether Revelation gives an irrational addition to our knowledge of God, where faith takes the place of understanding, or if Revelation enlarged by faith is a genuine way of knowing God. In brief: Is it possible to know God by loving God?

Professor Jean-Luc Marion – born 3 July 1946 in Meudon, France. He is a French historian of philosophy, phenomenologist, and Roman Catholic theologian. He has held chairs at both the Sorbonne and the University of Chicago.
