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 ofcontemporary French thought and helped shape and transform thefield 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 artsand music, and writing itself, we have learned to take stock of theworld in a more nuanced fashion.

In this collection, contemporaries of Nancy and eminent scholars ofcontinental philosophy, including Giorgio Agamben, ÉtienneBalibar, Ginette Michaud, Georges Van Den Abbeele, Gregg Lambertand Ian James, have been invited to reflect on the force of Nancy's"deconstruction" and how it has affected, or will affect, the wayswe approach many of the most pertinent topics in contemporaryphilosophy. The collection also includes Jean-Luc Nancy'spreviously unpublished 'Dialogue Beneath the Ribs', where hereflects, twenty years after, on his heart transplant.

Nancy Now will be of critical interest not only to scholarsworking on or with Nancy's philosophy, but also to those interestedin the development and future of French thought.

Review:

Drawing from some of the most prominent voices in contemporarycontinental philosophy, Nancy Now addresses an impressiverange of Nancys texts and motifs. The essays included heredemonstrate in new and demanding ways the continued timeliness theuntimely contemporaneity of Nancys thinking.
Philip Armstrong, Ohio State University

This cutting-edge collection proves that Nancy is the thinker ofour time. Nancys understanding of the present disrupts everyclaim of equivalence underlying the worlds politicaleconomy. Nancy Now is the constellation born from thisliberating breakthrough.
Frédéric Neyrat, University ofWisconsin-Madison

"Nancy Now is a collection that (re)introduces one of the most prominent figures in contemporary continential philosophy while emphasising the diachronicity of his work."
Political Studies Review
