The publication of this translation of Gabriel Marcel's autobiography, En chemin, vers quel eveil? is timely because of the renewed relevance and importance of his life and work to the postmodern situation. The relation of his autobiography to his productive projects is clearly tied to the unifying thread of creativity, which, as the primary dimension of the mystery of being, gives rise to his music, drama, and philosophical reflection. This autobiography fosters the retrieval of the sense of the mystery of being, thus reorienting philosophy as an awakening of the creativity at the heart of this sense of being. His narrative is a serious and creative interpretation of the unified sense of his life and work.
