Infinite Conversation by Maurice Blanchot

Book Description

In "The Infinite Conversation", Maurice Blanchot sustains a dialogue with a number of thinkers, including Kafka, Pascal, Nietzsche, Brecht, and Camus, whose contributions have marked turning points in the history of Western thought and have influenced virtually all the themes that inflect contemporary literary and philosophical debate. Reflecting on the nature of language, narrative voice, the imaginary, revolution, nihilism, and Jewish identity, Blanchot brings forward what the accomplishment of dialectical thought, as well as all thought based on categories of opposition, is unable to account for. Grounded in a tradition of philosophy and thoroughly conversant with phenomenology and the Romantic and post-Romantic traditions, Blanchot addresses fundamental questions that haunt all analyses of difference. His unique manner of questioning, which itself borders on poetry, challenges the very basis on which we read and fashion the world. Maurice Blanchot is a French critic, theorist, and novelist and the author of many works, including "Faux Pas", "L'Art de Mort", "La Part du Feu", "L'Espace Littraire", "L'Amiti", and "La Folie du Jour", many of which have been translated into several languages.
