On Jean-Luc Nancy presents, for the first time in English, some of the key issues at the heart of Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe and Jean-Luc Nancy’s work. We see some of the key motifs that have characterized their work: their debt to a Heideggerian pre-understanding of philosophy, the centrality of the “figure” in western philosophy and the totalitarianism of both politics and the political. Through contemporary readings of the political in Freud, Heidegger and Marx they reveal how philosophy relies on the political for its reinvention and representation and how it has done so since Socrates’ meditation on the polis. Contributors include Georges van den Abeele, Miguel de Beistegui, howard Caygill, Fred Dallmayr, Francis Fischer, Rodolphe Gasche, Werner Hamacher, Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, Jeffrey S. Librett, Alphonso Lingis, Michael B. Naas and Wilhelm S. Wurzer.”These extraordinarily timely essays do far more than make sense of Nancy’s work. They take from that work a sense of orientation that remains once the great Western project called philosophy has reached its limit .” Peggy Kamuf, University of Southern California, Los Angeles
