All-expenses paid retreat for 3rd and 4th year McIntire students from Oct. 13 (Fri) to Oct. 15, (Sun) at the Sevenoaks Retreat Center
Professor Kevin Hart works primarily between the worlds of Philosophy and Theology, and also in the field of Religion and Literature. He is currently editing Jean-Luc Marion: The Essential Works for Fordham UP. He is also in the process of revising essays to be included in two collections: one that is provisionally entitled: The Iconic Moment: Poetry and Christianity , and another with the working title From the French: Essays on French Philosophy and Theology. My main project is The Phenomenology of the Christ. He co-edits the book series “Thresholds: Philosophy and Theology” for Notre Dame UP; he serves on the Comité Scientifique d’Oeuvres d’Emmanuel Lévinas (Grasset), and sits on the editorial boards of Cahiers Blanchot, Christianity and Literature, Expositions, Faith and Philosophy, Journal of Cultural and Religious Theory, and New Literary History.
Hart is currently working on a study of Catholic contemplation provisionaly entitled: Contemplation: To the Kingdom of Silence. The book seeks to show that, on the one hand, the Catholic contemplative tradition, especially in Richard of St Victor, foreshadows phenomenology as developed in the twentieth century and, on the other hand, that phenomenology in the twentieth century can learn a great deal about the scope of manifestation by reading Richard. The book covers a variety of other topics, but is at present in a fluid state as it is being written.
