Abstract :
Does phenomenology’s method necessarily mean it is blind to theology? Husserl and Heidegger thought so, but many more recent authors doubt this. In this text, Jean-Luc Marion reflects on his own contributions to this debate. He has previously introduced the concept of the ‘saturated phenomenon’ to do justice to an appearance which cannot, or at least not adequately, be grasped by means of the available notions and concepts. Phenomenology finds its fulfilment by taking these phenomena seriously and thereby opening itself up to theological revelation.
