Oxford University Press | April 3, 2017

Jean-Luc Marion is one of the most important philosophers for the contemporary study of religion.

Believing in Order to See On the Rationality of Revelation and the Irrationality of Some Believers explores the questions of Catholic identity and the interplay of faith and reason in a clear manner, making it easily accessible to those without philosophical training.

It might also be of value to anyone interested Catholic education's contribution to intellectual life.

Take a Closer Look

What happens when we look at a painting? What do we think about? What do we imagine? How can we explain, even to ourselves, what we see or think we see? And how can art historians interpret with any seriousness what they observe? In six engaging, short narrative "fictions," each richly illustrated in color, Daniel Arasse, one of the most brilliant art historians of our time, cleverly and gracefully guides readers through a variety of adventures in seeing, from Velázquez to Titian, Bruegel to Tintoretto.
