Experience of love and its discourse: Marionś phenomenology and mysticism
Languages of publication
The aim of the article is to approach the proximity of Jean-Luc Marion´s phenomenology to mysticism. Marion´s transcendence to mysticism can be seen in two directions: in the interpretation of Dionysius the Areopagite´s work, and in the understanding of saturated phenomena. Marion claims that Dionysius the Aeropagite indicates a new pragmatic function of language, targeting God who overcomes all the names. The discourse of hymn and praise of God does not lie in predicting attributes. I tis not a masked prediction, but it is outside the dual framework of true and false. Marion also believes that man, as an image of God, is not equal to his icon. His reflections can be understood and interpreted in such a way that two incomprehensible and loving beings come together in the encounter of God and man. Here we can see the first condition, assumption and the very possibility of mysticism as such. The intersections of phenomenology and literature are obvious, but phenomenology still remains both an invitations and a challenge for literary theory.
