Theology, the last frontier of philosophy?

The Philosopher (1):3-10 (2015)

A book published in 1991, entitled "The Theological Turn in French Phenomenology," had a great impact in the philosophical world. Its author, Dominique Janicaud, accused several philosophers of betraying the principles of Husserl's thought, by the introduction of theology into philosophy. Basing my reflection on the works of Michel Henry (1922-2002) one of his most important targets, I will question the validity of this criticism. Is theology a deviation within continental philosophy, demonstrating that it has not the validity of a science? Or does questioning the idea of God lie at the heart of Phenomenology through the experience and practice that it offers?
