Phenomenology Giussani

Life has been quite eventful as of late so blogging has been sparse.

I started a phenomenology class that looks to be a good one. We are starting with Husserl then will go into some Marion and will cover a few others along the way. I am excited for what this class may turn into. Finally, a chance for me to consider more formally and present Giussani's views/writings as a type of phenomenology of what ends up being a religious experience though it need not have consciously started out as such, and to do so with folks who are well-versed in Continental thought, especially Descartes, Kant, Hegel, Husserl, Heidegger, and now Marion.

Note: Giussani finally rang more deeply true and corresponding to my own desires of the heart (in his sense, not just an emotional sense) after studying Hegel and Heidegger. What Heidegger spoke of seems to be given an answer, a proposed answer, by Giussani in his Religious Sense.
