Translated title of the contribution: The transcendence in Roger Garaudy ideological-existential pathway

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



Roger’s Garaudy existential path and the ideological itinerary are united in such a way that they determinate and configure themselves mutually. Aoer highlighting the main experiences which indelibly marked Garaudy’s life and the consequent phases of the trajectory of his thinking, the current paper dwells on the maVer of transcendence which constitutes a central issue of the Garaudin philosophy. In a first stage of the Marxist followership in which Garaudy confesses himself as atheist, the transcendence is read in an exclusively horizontal horizon, in key of subjectivity — the epiphany of the other — and of temporality — the opening of the future. Aoerwards, the dialogue of Christianity opens Garaudy to the recognition of God-Transcendence, in a process of deep interior drama, as he later confesses. At last, the accession to Islam will provide him a new clarification and a bigger strength in the harmony man-God, inspired in the Islamic principle of the fundamental unity of everything — twahid.
