Contents Marcel's Reflective Method -- Transcending Philosophy by Teleologically Suspending Philosophy -- Living in a Broken World -- Lewis Gordon on Antiblack Racism -- Criticizing Marcel's Reflective Method
Summary Tunstall contends that Gabriel Marcel's reflective method is animated by two extraphilosophical commitments. Marcel's first extraphilosophical commitment is to an ethico-religious insight where the highest ontological exigency for human persons is to participate in being. Marcel's second extra-philosophical commitment is to battle the ever-present threat of dehumanisation in late Western modernity. The importance of these two commitments to Marcel's reflective method can be appreciated better if one views it as a teleological suspension of philosophy
