Prof. Falque will present a seminar paper on “Phenomenology and Theology: Testing the Boundaries”
Abstract: For many years now phenomenology in France has been the origin of theological renewal. The publication in France of The Theological
Turn of French Phenomenology clearly marked this, and many authors fit in this project, including Levinas, Ricoeur, Henry, Marion, Chrétien,
and Lacoste. However, is it enough to study theology starting from phenomenology? Can we not also imagine a “return shock”, traveling back
from theology onto phenomenology, which even comes to modify phenomenology itself? By “crossing the Rubicon” or transgressing the
boundaries, each will be further enriched in its own discipline.
