In this first English translation of an important work, a leading phenomenologist unfolds the ideas of memory and loss, of the immemorable, and of hope, as he opens a phenomenological path to the heart of classical thought. He stands with Levinas, Marion, and Henry in attempting to join philosophy and religion after Kant, Nietzsche, and Heidegger.
