Description The Metamorphosis of Finitude de Emmanuel Falque:

This book starts off from a philosophical premise: nobody can be in the world unless they are born into the world. It examines this premise in the light of the theological belief that birth serves, or ought to serve, as a model for understanding what resurrection could signify for us today. After all, the modern Christian needs to find some way of understanding resurrection, and the dogma of the resurrection of the body is vacuous unless we can relate it philosophically to our own world of experience.
Nicodemus first posed the question "How can anyone be born after having grown old? Can one enter a second time into the mother's womb and be born?" This book reads that problem in the context of contemporary philosophy (particularly the thought of Husserl, Heidegger, Sartre, Merleau-Ponty, and Deleuze). A phenomenology of the body born "from below" is seen as a paradigm for a theology of spiritual rebirth, and for rebirth of the body from "on high."
The Resurrection changes everything in Christianity--but it is also our own bodies that must be transformed in resurrection, as Christ is transfigured. And the way in which I hope to be resurrected bodily in God, in the future, depends upon the way in which I live bodily today. Professor Emmanuel Falque is Dean of the Department of Philosophy at the The Catholic Institute of Paris. He is well known for writings that combine an expertise in medieval philosophy, modern French phenomenology, and theology. His recent publications include Saint Bonaventure et l'entree de Dieu en theologie (2000)- Dieu, la chair et l'autre: D'Irenee a Duns Scot (2008) and the trilogy in which the present volume appeared in French: Le passseur de Gethsemani (1999), Metamorphose de la finitude (2004), and Les Noces de l'Agneau (2011). George Hughes taught at the University of Tokyo. His most recent publication is Reading Novels.
