About the Author

Dr Robyn Horner is a Lecturer in Theology at the Australian Catholic University, Australia.


'Jean-Luc Marion is the pre-eminent French thinker of the generation that follows Deleuze, Derrida and Foucault. Yet neither in French nor in English has there been a reliable guide to his phenomenology and its extensions into theology. Robyn Horner is the guide we have been waiting for: lucid, nuanced, and very well informed in all aspects of the work of this complex and compelling thinker.' Professor Kevin Hart, The University of Notre Dame, USA ' erudite introduction to the key themes in Marion's work, presented in a form accessible to advanced undergraduates, without sacrificing complexity. The book also includes excerpts from Marion's work and a nearly exhaustive bibliography of primary and secondary sources. An excellent resource...Highly recommended.' Choice 'Given Marion's importance, Robyn Horner has provided a great service in writing this book...Horner does a brilliant job of situating Marion within his philosophical context... In addition to the analysis of Marion's work, Horner provides an invaluable and exhaustive primary and secondary bibliography of Marion's work, as well as excerpts from representative texts.' The Journal of Religion
