By Jean-Luc Nancy
The crucial challenge posed in those essays, gathered from over a decade, is how within the wake of Western ontologies to conceive the arriving, the delivery that characterises being. the 1st a part of this e-book, 'Existence' asks how, this present day, you possibly can provide experience or aspiring to life as such, arguing that life itself, because it comes nude into the realm, needs to now be our 'sense'. In reading what this delivery to presence could be, we must always no longer ask what presence 'is'; particularly, we must always conceive presence as presence to somebody, together with to presence itself. the second one part, 'Poetry', asks: What if paintings exposes this? In writing, within the voice, in portray? And what if artwork is uncovered to it? How does it inscribe the arrival of lifestyles as such? The author's trajectory during this e-book crosses these of Hegel, Schlegel, Baudelaire, Nietzsche, Freud and Heidegger, of their reviews on artwork and politics, life and corporeality, way of life and its modes of lifestyles, and ecstasy. An research that dares this crossing consists of all of the diversified money owed of lifestyles, political and philosophical, in addition to all of the geographical regions of poetry.
