Nancy and the Political

Sanja Dejanovic


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, Rancière, Foucault, Agamben and Lefort.

Keywords: Jean-Luc Nancy, Political, Ontology, Aesthetics
