Jim P.,
I agree with this and your previous posting. As for the incarnational
aspect, isn't that where Marcel comes in? Some secondary sources (I can't
remember who--that was back in my graduate schools days) point out the
incarnational aspect of Marcel's writings. But, if "the other" leads us to
a greater realization of our selves, isn't there something incarnational
about our encounters with others (of course, Buber and Levinas have a
similar view, without the incarnational understanding (at least not in the
Christian sense). But I think that is what Marcel is getting at in
Creative Fidelity and Being and Having.
 I wish I had more time to pull out my Marcel books and revisit them, but
the semester begins on Wednesday, and I need to buckle down and get ready
(no time for this fun stuff--the hoofbeats are approaching!).
