In this paper I want to explore a certain community of writing, namely the one between Jacques Derrida and Jean-Luc Nancy. The on-going dialogue between the two on the subject of community has left in their writings only traces (with the exception of the first essay in Derrida’s Voyous): implicit...
Introduction: Nancy engages with democracy most explicitly in his little book The Truth of Democracy, the publication of which marks the 40th anniversary of May ’68. At the beginning of the eponymous essay, ‘The Truth of Democracy,’ Nancy identifies as the ‘real singularity’ of May ’68 a certain...
Cohabitating in the Globalised World: Peter Sloterdijk's Global Foams and Bruno Latour's CosmopoliticsDownload
This paper seeks to present a comprehensive and systematic picture of Peter Sloterdijk's ambitious and provocative theory of globalisation. In the Sphären (Spheres) trilogy, Sloterdijk provides both a spatialised ontology of human existence and a historical thesis concerning the radical shifts in...

This article seeks to situate Jean-Luc Nancy’s theory of embodiment in relation to Merleau-Ponty’s description of the lived body, especially as it is found in The Phenomenology of Perception. It shows that while both Nancy and Merleau-Ponty develop their view of the body through an engagement...

We tend to think of violence as something that happens within the world, as something done by a thing, a being or an existent, to another thing, being or existent. But what would it mean to speak of the violence done to the world or, inversely, of the violence done by the world? Are there ways in...
Putting Community under Erasure: The Dialogue between Jacques Derrida and Jean-Luc Nancy on the Plurality of SingularitiesDownload
In a note at the end of the essay 'The inoperative community,' Jean-Luc Nancy describes the writing of our being-in-common, or of our being-with, as a community of writing: 'inserted, alternated, shared, divided texts, as all texts are, offering that which does not belong to anyone, but which...
