Jean-Luc Nancy (/nɑːnˈsi/; French: ; born 26 July 1940) is a French philosopher. Nancy's first book, published in 1973, was Le titre de la lettre (The Title of the Letter, 1992), a reading of the work of French psychoanalyst Jacques Lacan, written in collaboration with Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe

In this book, it has been my objective to survey the relevance of Nancy's expansive vision to many contemporary philosophical concerns, all of which relate to the question of the future of our time and the status of the concept of the "future" today.

B. C HUTCHENS : ANALYZES "WRITING": Every commentator has a speciality; for Hutchens it is the realm of consciousness and its work of "writing" sense. I've said before that I am a fan of Jean-Luc Nancy. And I've come to appreciate Hutchens for his accurate depth of analysis.

Hutchens does not address much in the way of "motivation", but gives a detailed account of "deconstruction" in the unconscious. But; moving on to consciousness, is another matter. A superb presentation of "writing" is given here. This can be difficult for some readers of Nancy, and this material should help. He articulates the "generic-verb" of Nancy's hemeneutic as:
"to interrupt", which is precise and accurate. And he does an excellent job of bringing out the sub-system triads and not just emphasizing the over-arching triads. For example, he gives us the triad of "thinking-through" as: 1. Mechanical-unity; 2. Transitive-unity; and 3. World-sense-unity. In the realm of mediation he gives us the sub-system triad of: 1. Wonder-of-subject; 2. "Surprise-of-event"; and 3. "Leap-of-sense".

"Positing gets attention as "3" moments of ethical-interrogation, which is excellent. The systematic approach enlisted here complements Nancy's same systematic articulations. Therefore, "sense" gets realized as a strong "tandem-of-articulation" in this book.

this book is "post-grad material"; and I would be disappointed if I was anything else. Ths is for the Hegel or Nancy scholar or expert. Very strong recommendation from this reader - "5" stars.

I have just finished my first complete reading. I shall return for careful study immediately. Until then, I do wish to share my initial impressions. This is a beautiful study and only a bit less difficult to understand than the original Nancy volumes. So it is not recommended as a first contact with Nancy's work, even while it does offer a comprehensive consideration of that work up to the time of this book's printing, 2005.

In part that means that the most recent volumes on Christianity by Nancy Dis-Enclosure: The Deconstruction of Christianity (Perspectives in Continental Philosophy) Adoration: The Deconstruction of Christianity II (Perspectives in Continental Philosophy (Paperback Unnumbered)) are not well represented. The chapter titled "Post-secular theology" gives a no-nonsense exposition of Nancy's disregard for organized religion in general. That is one area where the suspension of history that Nancy examines closes all doors to the past--but maybe not without letting just a sliver of light from under the door to appear in those more recent translations and in Hutchens' analysis.

I own but have not yet read Hutchens' book on Levinas. Levinas: A Guide For the Perplexed (Guides for the Perplexed) I hope to get to it soon, as it will help me gain a fuller perspective on the context that Hutchens brings to the topic of theology. After those two books, Hutchens also edited a book that examines some of Nancy's contributions to studies of the political. Jean-Luc Nancy: Justice, Legality and World (Continuum Studies in Continental Philosophy) My copy is on its way to me, so it will get my attention in its turn. I have read Marie-Eve Morin's complimentary review of that book--which reminds me to suggest that for an initial contact with commentaries on Nancy, her volume is outstanding. Jean-Luc Nancy

I have struggled with a half dozen or more of Nancy's works in English. I turned to commentaries because Nancy is both so gigantically comprehensive and so uniquely singular in his unsystematic system, I doubt I shall ever be able to gain any depth of understanding without the help of commentaries.

At this time, all I can say is that Hutchens, while his prose is almost painfully intricate because it is incisive, has persuaded me that Nancy's thought can be managed. Understand that I have had my doubts, as my acquaintance with his scope has proceeded. Simply said, Nancy has brought a new perspective to our Western ways of thinking that defies classification. In view of the numerous works of recent decades that have declared that philosophy has no future, Nancy's capacity to plow right on ahead and sketch out some alternatives opens doors (maybe even for religion).

The future of philosophy is bright and beautiful. The future of religion is a mere candle in the darkness, but if religion can pay attention to the new insistences of serious thought [call it whatever you will: philosophy, theology, literature, deconstruction, post-secular, post-atheism, "globalatinization" (per Derrida), etc.] perhaps the light from even a single candle can add something irreplaceable.

One warning: we expect the "Introduction" to be slightly ponderous, but do not let the weightiness of the first section of Chapter 3 "Immanence" discourage you. Skip it and come back, if need be. If you are able to understand it on first reading, you already have the meat of Nancy's thinking. I am still plodding along.
