Intogether with Fr. Transcendence, in the secondary or attenuated sense of surpassing or rising above the human situation, was therefore already of crucial importance for Garaudy, even though he seems not to have employed the word itself in his thesis. Marxism poses the same questions as Christianity but, because it is a critical philosophy, it does not consider itself authorised to transform the questions into an answer.

Man no longer thinks of himself as a fragment of the city, and beyond that of the cosmic whole: La mort – j’entends la mort naturel In Galileo’s conception of the world, mathematics constituted the veritable ‘being in itself’ of nature. Abdullahi Mursal marked it as to-read Feb 28, Inhe led the sixty-day miners’ strike in Carmaux.

Blondel was an emeritus professor at Aix during Garaudy’s student days. La vie transcende le physico So much for the moral appeal of belief in God the creator, but is such a belief intellectually viable? This is not the case at all for Ibn Arabi: The Founding Myths of Modern Israel. As a result of this, Garaudy received several anonymous death threats and was widely ostracised.

Ihssane rated it it was amazing Sep 13, Finally, he demands to know what this mysterious human essence or nature which is implied by the words ‘I am’ actually consists of, and whether we can grasp it like an exterior object and describe it independently of its activity as if it were a machine.


We will therefore begin with them before examining the position propounded in Les Fossoyeurs ‘The Grave-diggers’which was published in and which is strikingly different.

Roger Garaudy A contre-nuit: The philosophical itinerary of Roger Garaudy

The reasons for this temporary lapse are unclear but Garaudy’s memoirs, which were published three years earlier, contain a number of possible clues. Garaudy subsequently adopted a more positive attitude towards religion when he became aware of the subtlety of Marx’s thought.

The scholar insisted that there could be no relationship between God and man other than that of master and slave, and he asked Garaudy about his attitude to the fear of God. Parce qu’elles ne font qu’un.

No trivia or quizzes yet. Islam Alshawish marked it as to-read Jan 02, Abdelkader Bellal marked it garaufy to-read Jan 30, Slimene marked it as to-read Aug 16, Garaudy remained a Christian and eventually re-converted to Catholicism during his roter career.

Shortly before his conversion, however, he appears to have become convinced that such a belief was morally necessary and that the Islamic tradition had within it the resources for making it intellectually tenable. Nermin Amin marked it as to-read Mar 28, He defended the claim of Lysenko, the Soviet botanist, that acquired characteristics may be inherited; he explained the emergence of consciousness in terms of Pavlovian reflexes; and he toed the orthodox Soviet line that knowledge is a reflection of reality, or in other words, as Lenin put it, that the objective laws of nature are translated more haraudy less exactly into man’s head.

In Algeria, at a conference on Islamic thought which took place inhe clashed publicly with a Wahhabi scholar from Qatar, who criticised him for speaking of the role of the love of God in Islam. He discovered that Marx himself, unlike many of his superficial disciples, had never espoused metaphysical materialism. Starting with the conditions in which it is born and in accordance with them, it projects its own livtes, its projects.


Roger Garaudy

Like Christianity, Marxism seeks to transform the world not merely by re-organising society but by a spiritual metamorphosis which will liberate man. Senior Iranian officials invited him to Tehran and received him warmly. As a Communist, and later as a radical Christian, Garaudy believed in transcendence in the sense of surpassing or rising above the present human situation, but his Marxist background made it very difficult for him to countenance a transcendent Deity above and independent of the universe.

For Marx, on the other hand, religious alienation is only one specific example of man’s alienation, which begins as soon as he is divested of the fruits of his labour.

Mon tour de siècle en solitaire

Garaudy observes that the Qur’an is God’s Word, not his self-revelation. Garaudy lectured in the faculty of arts department of the University of Clermont-Ferrand from He had been deeply anxious lest his fellow-Muslims failed to accept the mystery of love, which he held had become through Jesus the warp garauvy woof of every life.

What Marx had advocated was not materialism as opposed to idealism but rather a philosophy of praxis as opposed to a philosophy of being. Moreover this unity is not a matter of being but of praxis. Refresh and try again. However, it was a short step from this to something even worse than individualism, namely positivism: His Paris doctoral thesis on the materialist theory of knowledge was published in At the level of secondary causes, however, there are many reasons why a Western intellectual might embrace Graaudy.
