Description - Nancy Now by Verena Conley
Jean-Luc Nancy stands as one of the great French theorists of
"deconstruction." His writings on philosophy, politics, aesthetics,
and religion have significantly contributed to the development of
contemporary French thought and helped shape and transform the
field of continental philosophy. Through Nancy's immense oeuvre,
which covers a wide range of topics such as community, freedom,
existence, sense/ touch, democracy, Christianity, the visual arts
and music, and writing itself, we have learned to take stock of the
world in a more nuanced fashion.
In this collection, contemporaries of Nancy and eminent scholars of
continental philosophy, including Giorgio Agamben, Etienne
Balibar, Ginette Michaud, Georges Van Den Abbeele, Gregg Lambert
and Ian James, have been invited to reflect on the force of Nancy's
"deconstruction" and how it has affected, or will affect, the ways
we approach many of the most pertinent topics in contemporary
philosophy. The collection also includes Jean-Luc Nancy's
previously unpublished 'Dialogue Beneath the Ribs', where he
reflects, twenty years after, on his heart transplant.
Nancy Now will be of critical interest not only to scholars
working on or with Nancy's philosophy, but also to those interested
in the development and future of French thought.
