Thomas Aquinas, Jean-Luc Marion, and an Alleged Category Mistake Involving God and Being

This article seeks to defend the possibility of a metaphysical approach to philosophical theology. Challenging the claim that there can be nothing in common between God (with whom theology or even a form of phenomenology such as Jean-Luc Marion’s deals) and being (as expounded for example in the metaphysical approach of Thomas Aquinas), the article develops a critique of Marion’s views with close reference to his interpretations of Aquinas.
