    Abstract

    Jean-Luc Marion’s remarks on the saturated phenomenon of the Name made in the sixth chapter of his book In Excess add a very interesting voice to the ongoing discussion about the interpretation of Exod. 3.148. Therefore, it is my great pleasure to look at possible interpretations of the Burning Bush episode in the light of Marion’s philosophical discourse. Hence, in this article, I shall answer the following question: Can we propose a modern interpretation of Exod. 3.14 which would be in accordance with the concept of the Name understood as a saturated phenomenon, and with de-nomination conceived as a pragmatic theology of absence?
