  2. Marcel and the Philosophy of Place.Steven Knepper - 2019 - Marcel Studies 4 (1):1-12.
    This essay explores some resources Gabriel Marcel offers for describing and cultivating an attuned, responsive relationship to place. Taking a brief passage in “An Outline of a Concrete Philosophy” as its departure point, it explores how some of Marcel‟s key concepts—ontological exigence, disponibilité and creative fidelity— might be reinterpreted in this regard. It also draws on writings about place by some Marcelian kindred spirits, namely Henry Bugbee, Walker Percy, William Desmond, and Wendell Berry.

    Fanaticism, Terrorism, Suicide Terrorism: Some Marcelian Perspectives.Rico Sneller - 2019 - Marcel Studies 4 (1):25-37.
    In this article, I will shed some light on the phenomenon of suicide terrorism from the perspective of Marcel. It turns out that, without being contemporaneous to this phenomenon, Marcel to some extent illuminates it by developing several highly significant notions and analyses. I am referring to notions such as “mystery,” “evil,” “problem,” “presence,” and “intersubjectivity.” Based on Marcel’s thinking, I would like to suggest that suicide terror exemplifies a state of precipitated, albeit flawed, intersubjectivity. I will conclude by drawing (...)
