The Revelation of the Phenomena and the Phenomenon of Revelation
An Apology for Dionysius’s Phenomenological Appropriation

The present essay is apologetic in as much as it aims to justify as well as to explain the philosophical appropriation of Dionysian metaphysics by contemporary French phenomenology, especially by the work of Jean-Luc Marion. It should be noted that Dionysius serves as the inspiration, direct or indirect, of many authors in the contemporary French school, among whom the most notable are Jacques Derrida, Jean-Louis Chretien, and Jean-Yves Lacoste. The present essay will focus particularly on the convergence between Dionysius’s theology and Marion’s phenomenology.
