In this collection, contemporaries of Nancy and eminent scholars of continental philosophy, including Giorgio Agamben, Étienne 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 The collection also includes Jean-Luc Nancy's previously unpublished 'Dialogue Beneath the Ribs', where he reflects, twenty years after, on his heart transplant.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.
Irving Goh is a visiting scholar at the Society for the Humanities, Cornell University.
Drawing from some of the most prominent voices in contemporary
continental philosophy, Nancy Now addresses an impressive
range of Nancy?s texts and motifs. The essays included here
demonstrate in new and demanding ways the continued timeliness the
untimely contemporaneity of Nancy?s thinking.
Philip Armstrong, Ohio State University
This cutting-edge collection proves that Nancy is the thinker of
our time. Nancy?s understanding of the present disrupts every
claim of equivalence underlying the world?s political
economy. Nancy Now is the constellation born from this
Frederic Neyrat, University of Wisconsin-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."
