Who is Jean-Luc Marion?
Well, from Wikipedia, we read this opening sentence:
Jean-Luc Marion (born 3 July 1946) is among the best-known living philosophers in France, former student of Jacques Derrida and one of the leading Catholic thinkers of modern times.
While having written in many areas of philosophy, the explicitly religious works of Jean-Luc Marion have received much attention. In his book God Without Being, Marion is concerned predominantly with an analysis of idolatry. Here, read this:
Jean-Luc Marion advances a controversial argument for a God free of all categories of Being. Taking a characteristically postmodern stance, Marion challenges a fundamental premise of both metaphysics and neo-Thomist theology: that God, before all else, must be. Rather, he locates a “God without Being” in the realm of agape, of Christian charity or love.
