Thinking Hermeneutics with Nancy

PDF, 12 Seiten

This contribution examines the importance of Nancy’s rethinking of the sense and meaning of hermeneutics, departing from his early text Le partage des voix. Beginning with an inquiry into how the notion of partage impacts the understanding of dialogue, the author continues to explore, with Nancy, the importance of interpretation as a way of bringing something into circulation and thus, of communicating. Subsequently, the author considers to what extent Nancy’s explication of hermeneutics leaves room to speak of the subject matter—Sache—of interpretation and how it deals with the ordeal of the foreign as experienced in the act of translating, which is a particular form of interpretation.

Susanna Lindberg (Hg.), Artemy Magun (Hg.), ...: Thinking With—Jean-Luc Nancy

With this book, we would like to resume the passionate conversation that Jean-Luc Nancy was engaged in throughout his life, with philosophers and artists from all over the world. Now that he has passed away, it is not enough for us to simply reflect on his work: we would like to stay true to the stance to which his thought invites us, in a pluralistic and communal way. Jean-Luc Nancy takes up the old philosophical question of truth as a praxis of a with — understanding truth without any given measure or comparison as an articulation of a with. It is a thinking responsible for the world from within the world, a language that seeks to respond to the ongoing mutation of our civilization.
