Nancy and the Political (Critical Connections EUP)
- Publish Date: 2015-02-01
- Binding: Hardcover
Jean-Luc Nancy's latest contributions to philosophy compel us to ask: what sort of politics do we have once we are exposed to the finitude of sense? The contributors to this collection illuminate some of the most challenging aspects of Nancy's thought, making previously unexplored connections and offering spirited interpretations.
Focussed around three core themes - capitalism, the metaphysics of democracy and aesthetics - these 11 essays emphasise the potential of Nancy's political thought, and collectively situate it within a broader intellectual context which includes engagements with Badiou, Rancire, Foucault, Agamben and Lefort. It is an essential read for anyone interested in current trends in political philosophy, aesthetics, critical theory and social and political thought.
