Thinking WithJean-Luc Nancy

Jean-Luc Nancy - Thinking With
A collection of about thirty texts to resume the passionate conversation that Jean-Luc Nancy was engaged in throughout his life, with philosophers and artists from all over the world.
Now that Jean-Luc Nancy has passed away, it is not enough for us to simply reflect on his work: we would like to stay true to the stance to which his thought invites us, in a pluralistic and communal way. Jean-Luc Nancy takes up the old philosophical question of truth as a praxis of a with—understanding truth without any given measure or comparison as an articulation of a with. It is a thinking responsible for the world from within the world, a language that seeks to respond to the ongoing mutation of our civilization.

Jean-Luc Nancy (1940-2021) was one of the great figures of post-modern philosophy and one of the most influential contemporary thinkers. He taught Philosophy at the Université Marc Bloch, Strasbourg and was visiting professor with the universities of Berkeley, Irvine, San Diego and Berlin until he recently retired from his professorship. His work has been acknowledged and praised by academics and the wider international public alike. It comprises a variety of research focuses reaching from the ontology of society to the metamorphosis of reason and the arts, on image studies, and even on political and religious aspects with respect to ongoing developments. In his latest texts he has focused on the deconstruction of monotheism.
