Phenomenological philosophy of religion (Söderblom, van der Leeuw and Otto atthe beginning) stresses the impossibility of a conceptual definition of God and considersthe sacred as the very object of religion. The sacred is an oxymoronic reality,because it is at the same time opaque and glaring, in the sense that it escapes an eideticobjectifying intuition, but is felt in the body in an immediate and also upsettingway. As Richard Kearney shows, on the level of feeling through the body subjectivityworks on the Otherness, which is the phenomenon of its carnal Erlebnis, activatinghermeneutical diacritical operations thanks to the role of imagination and under thecondition of confidence in respect of the Other in order to move in the space of theirreducible distance between subjectivity and Otherness.
