T. VINAYARAJ other hand, the iconic ways of speaking of God come from God, not from us. For Marion, all our talk about God becomes idolatrous in its ontotheological sense. However, Marion does not deny the possibility of God-talk. He reminds us of the problem of an onto-theological God as Being. He points towards the possibility of a ‘seeing’/‘speaking’ God without being. Marion doesn’t reject the presence of God rather, he offers a language of God that ‘crosses out’ the difference between divinity and humanity, or being and without being.
70 What is positive here is that it affirms the individuation of the Other. But the question here is, does this saturated phenomena transcend the hegemonic interpretation of the other by the subject? Marion alludes to the Derridean/Levinasian ‘gift,’ ‘secret,’ ‘the third person,’ as the source of a kenotic self or ego to reimagine the other in its own individuation or concreteness. It is here that Marion’s phenomenology of charity faces interrogation. 71 According to Marion, theology must proceed from God and be grounded in the Eucharist.
