(p.1) Introduction Sense, Praxis, and the Political
Nancy and the Political

Sanja Dejanovic

Edinburgh University Press

The introduction outlines the three core themes discussed in this compilation of insightful, stimulating, and original papers on Jean-Luc Nancy's thinking of the political; engaging with some of the hitherto unexplored aspects of his more recent texts, shedding light on the various complexities that are a source of wonder for the reader of European philosophy, and orienting Nancy's philosophy within a broader context. The purpose of the volume is to delve into the intersection of art, the political, and ontology. To this end, the introduction frames an approach to considering such an intersection by delving into Nancy's ontology of sense and praxis, the ethic of existence and freedom that underpins his notion of democracy, as well as the intersection between two infinities that call for a struggle for a world.
