About the Author

Jean-Luc Nancy is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Universite Marc Bloch, Strasbourg. His wide-ranging thought is developed in many books, including Expectation: Philosophy, Literature; The Possibility of a World; The Banality of Heidegger; The Disavowed Community; and, with Adele Van Reeth, Coming (all Fordham). Richard A. Rand is Professor of English Emeritus at the University of Alabama. He has published essays on British, American, and French literature, and has translated works by Jacques Derrida and Jean Paulhan.


Jean-Luc Nancy gives us bodies in their gravitational weight, their mutual touch, their joy and their devastation, their self-evident presence and their constant elusiveness. From the dazzlingly layered complications of the opening "Corpus" to the meditatively personal accessibility of the closing "The Intruder," these essays display the necessary connections and mutual exclusions of flesh and word. Nancy's work on bodies, already canonical, engages traditions we thought we knew-Platonism, Cartesianism, Christianity-and shows us how much newness is possible still. -- -Karmen MacKendrick * Le Moyne College *
Translation of 'Corpus,' an essay on the body written by the French philosopher between 1990 and 1992, as well as other writings that revisit the work. * -The Chronicle of Higher Education *
