Art and desire have been perennial objects of philosophical and theological questioning throughout the history of ideas in the West. Phenomenology in particular has proven itself uniquely equipped to explore these topics with its method of examining human experience. Thinkers such as Maurice Merleau-Ponty, Jean-Françoise Lyotard, Jacques Derrida, Richard Kearney, and David Tracy, as well as those conventionally associated with the so-called theological turn in French phenomenology, such as Michel Henry, Jean-Luc Marion, Jean-Louis Chrétien, and Emmanuel Falque, frequently treat one or another of these topics. However, the relation between art and desire together in the human experience of the divine or Absolute broadly construed goes overlooked in contemporary academic discussions. The question remains: what is the role of the desire of/for God in art and aesthetic experience? Registration is free. Click on home on top right hand corner for details.
