How does Being Appear?

Jean-Luc Marion asks, "Does the reduction lead phenomenology to see Being as a phenomenon?" (Reduction and Givenness, p. 39). A kneejerk response would be "No, only constituted beings appear phenomenally; Being itself is given otherwise." I'm not sure how Marion will answer the question he poses, but I am sure it will not be a kneejerk response. Instead, he points toward the phenomenology of givenness as such and intends to interrogate it.
