Michel Henry : The Affects of Thought Paperback / softback

Edited by Jeffrey Hanson, Professor Michael R. Kelly

Part of the Bloomsbury Studies in Continental Philosophy series

Description

Michel Henry (1922-2002) was a French philosopher and novelist whose work spanned decades and genres while remaining united by a singular vision.

In this specially commissioned collection, eight internationally recognized experts on Henry's thought investigate his profound acquaintance with the mystery of life-which he understood as the irreducible bedrock of all reality-in its self-manifestation under the rubrics of phenomenological experience, religion, and praxis.

Each chapter investigates a different aspect of Henry's remarkable range of thought, focusing on his special relevance to debates on the relationship of phenomenology and theology as well as to contemporary radical discourses on embodiment and immanence, politics and theory. Henry's phenomenology of life is both deep and demanding, and its relevance to the topics under examination in this book cannot be denied.

This collection represents the first sustained effort in coming to an understanding of just how far and wide that relevance reaches.

It will not only spark a resurgence in Henry studies, but resonate within that sphere for many years to come.
