9780745652412: Jean-Luc Nancy

Jean-Luc Nancy is one of the leading contemporary thinkers in France today. Through an inventive reappropriation of the major figures in the continental tradition, Nancy has developed an original ontology that impacts the way we think about religion, politics, community, embodiment, and art.

Drawing from a wide range of his writing, Marie-Eve Morin provides the first comprehensive and systematic account of Nancy’s thinking, all the way up to his most recent work on the deconstruction of Christianity. Without losing sight of the heterogeneity of Nancy’s work, Morin presents a concise articulation of the organizing concepts, which structure Nancy’s body of work. The guiding thread is that of an essential rift at the heart of any “self” by which this self is exposed and relates to itself and other selves. Nancy’s ontology undercuts dichotomies between individual and community, interior and exterior, matter and spirit, thing and thought, not in the name of mere deconstruction, but in seeking to open a thinking of the “limit” or the “edge” as the locus of sense. While Nancy’s work has often been presented in relation to Heidegger or Derrida, Morin demonstrates the originality of Nancy’s work and argues that, despite the variety of its preoccupations and topics, it possesses its own rigorous internal logic.

This book will be of interest to students and scholars of philosophy and related fields who seek a systematic and critical understanding of one of the most original contemporary thinkers.

About the Author:

Marie-Eve Morin is assistant professor of philosophy at University of Alberta.

Review:

"A very fine introduction to Nancy for advanced undergraduate and research students."
Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews

"Morin's lucid overview of Nancy's philosophy provides clear definitions of his key terms, teases out the  complexity of his relationships to other thinkers, and demonstrates how his ontology of singular plurality informs his diverse range of concerns, from Christianity to politics, from embodiment
to aesthetics."
French Studies

"Prof. Morin has done an excellent job. She is clearly sympathetic to this thinker and unfolds for us the complexities of his work, making it accessible without ever allowing us to underestimate its subtlety. Comprehensive and expertly done, this book stands to play a key role in the reception of Nancy's opus."
Anne O'Byrne, Stony Brook University

"Morin gives a lucid and penetrating overview of Nancy's philosophy, beginning with his highly original reworking of ontology and ranging from questions of politics and community to those of Christianity, embodiment, and art. Her indispensable account demonstrates the unique importance of Nancy's thought for contemporary debate, its transformative power, and future potential."
Ian James, University of Cambridge

"In a systematic reading organized around key motifs in Jean-Luc Nancy's thought -ontology, Christianity, community, politics, body, and art - Marie-Eve Morin provides an expert and luminous introduction to an important oeuvre, still to be discovered and explored. For such a task, Marie-Eve Morin's fine book will prove to be an invaluable resource."
François Raffoul, Louisiana State University
