Gabriel Marcel's perspectives on The broken world
Gabriel Marcel's Perspectives on the Broken World: The Broken World, A Four-Act Play: followed by Concrete Approaches to Investigating The ntological Mystery by GabrielMarcel, Translated by Katharine Rose Hanley. In the Introduction Ralph McInerny (University of Notre Dame, Author of the Father Dowling Mysteries) says "The common target of the play and the essay is mystery - not mystery in the full religious sense... it is the sense of mystery and its unique revealatory role that he seeks to restore to philosophy. If he had done nothing else, his succes in this matter would constitute a major contribution to philosophy." This book is an ideal, and attractive, introduction for students, teachers and the general reading public to the thought of Gabriel Marcel. The play examies our experience of a broken world, one in which it seems the heart has stopped beating. The play's surprise ending raises the questions, "who am I" and "will my life be empty or full." The companion philosophic essay reflects upon these questions and brings to light many of Marcel's central themes such as presence, availability; authentic or inauthentic being; hope/despair; commitment and creative fidelity. 8 Appendices offer a gold mine of information about Gabriel Marcel's Life and Works as well.TO ORDER THIS BOOK: www.Marquette.edu/mupress.
