The Rigor of Things: Conversations with Dan Arbib

1. My Path

Jean-Luc Marion, what would you say if you had to summarize in a few com-
ments the meaning of the philosophical work that has prompted you along the
course of your career?

This question already gives rise to a paradox, for one really carries on a philosophical project without knowing what prompts it, or even precisely because one does not know it. In a sense, I have never had the impression that I knew where I was going, and I have never started a philosophical undertaking, such as a book or an article, being sure of where I was going or even what I was doing. Obviously, I always know the question I have been asked or am asking myself, but I do not know exactly where I am going, and the interest of high-level philosophical work surely lies in the fact that one covers a distance that one only sizes up retrospectively. It is also true that with each book one sees one’s aims with less clarity. In this sense, then, I cannot respond to your question. And conversely, even though I am certainly conscious that a certain unity emerges, I don’t think I’m the one best positioned to describe it.
