David W. Rodick indicates that Marcel’s dating to those American philosophers isn't really coincidental, yet relatively the philosophical expression of his Christian religion. Marcel’s most crucial legacy is his dedication to harmony of Christian philosophizing, a cohesion derived from either cause and revelation. Its variety stems from the target plurality of what's pursued in addition to the subjective plurality of these who pursue it. Christian philosophizing seeks a fact that each Christian believes can by no means be unfaithful to itself.
