" For Marcel, the emphasis is upon the qualification "blinded," a blocking of cognition until mediated by expression. " It is crucial to keep this in mind in the light of Marcel's references to reflection as "recovery," which can give the impression of reflection as the quest of return to an original. Perhaps it is in Marcel's frequent valorization of creativity that we can best see his distance from nostalgia: "As soon as there is creation, in whatever degree, we are in the realm of being,'' for "Being is the principle of inexhaustibility" (BH 150, 102).
If, as I have argued, the work of art served as his exemplar of understanding, then I think it clear that, for Marcel, one never gets beyond interpretation. The work of art is there for us to contemplate and, in a certain sense, for us to draw life from; but if we do draw more life from it, that is only by virtue of the act by which, opening ourselves to it and interpreting it for ourselves, we make it our own. For one's interpretation of a work of art is related fairly strictly to the sort of person one is, and therefore, in the case of every significant work of art, there is a wide and varied range of possible interpretations.
