Gabriel Marcel

Gabriel Marcel (1889–1973) was a french philosopher and christian existentialist. He dubbed himself as a "concrete philosopher", stressing becoming more involved in one's existence rather than forming abstract ideas. Marcel viewed philosophy as an inner reflection rather than the formation of a doctrine.

Marcel's father was atheist, as was Marcel himself until he joined the Catholic church in 1929.
