Jean-Luc Nancy and the Future of Philosophy

McGill-Queen's Press - MQUP, 2005 - 178 pàgines
Jean-Luc Nancy's "The Experience of Freedom" is a landmark work of contemporary continental philosophy and his writings on psychoanalysis, literature, theology, art, and culture have been widely influential. "Jean-Luc Nancy and the Future of Phiolosophy" is a sustained and critical examination of Nancy's ideas and their place within the general project of deconstructing Western philosophy. B.C. Hutchens offers a clear and succinct appraisal of Nancy's work. He explains the primary areas of the philosopher's thought and explores their relevance for contemporary issues such as nationalism, racism, media rights, and political practice. Nancy's work of freedom and morality, community and politics, and arts and the media is examined in greater detail. Hutchens also examines Nancy's indebtedness to Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Bataille and compares his ideas with those of his contemporaries, such as Levinas and Negri. "Jean-Luc Nancy and the Future of Philosophy" concludes with the author's recent and previously unpublished interview with Nancy about the future of philosophy. This book is an important addition to the literature on contemporary continental thought and political philosophy.
