Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book! This second volume in Nancy's The Deconstruction of Christianity explores the stance or bearing that would be appropriate for us now, in the wake of the dis-enclosure of religion and the retreat of God: that of adoration.
Adoration is stretched out toward things, but without phenomenological intention. In our present historical time, we have come to see relation itself as the divine.
The address and exclamation--the salut! This book clarifies and builds upon not only dis-enclosure, the first volume in this project, but also other previous writings on sense, the world, and the singular plurality of being. Keywords: dis-enclosure , God , adoration , phenomenological intention , sense , singular plurality , being. Forgot password?

Here, he connects his critique with Marx's critique of political economy , which saw "free labour" as what produces the world. Nancy argues that an authentic "dwelling" in the world must be concerned with the creation of meaning enjoyment and not final purposes, closed essences, and exclusive worldviews. The present system of expanding cities and nodes in the planetary techno-scientific network tied to capitalism leads to the loss of world, because the world is treated as an object globe , even though the self-deconstruction of ontotheology increasingly made it the "subject" of its own creation.
The premise of the title essay in this book is that there is no being without "being-with," that "I" does not come before "we" i. In an extension from his thoughts on freedom, community, and the sense of the world, he imagines the "being-with" as a mutual exposure to one another that preserves the freedom of the "I", and thus a community that is not subject to an exterior or pre-existent definition.
Nancy has also written for art catalogues and international art journals, especially on contemporary art. He also writes poetry and for the theatre and has earned respect as an influential philosopher of art and culture. Among the essays in The Muses is a piece on Caravaggio , originally a lecture given at the Louvre.
In this essay, Nancy looks for a different conception of painting where painting is not a representation of the empirical world, but a presentation of the world, of sense, or of existence. Nancy's text L'intrus formed the basis for French director Claire Denis's film of the same name. He has written extensively on film, including The Evidence of Film, a short work on Abbas Kiarostami.
