Book Description

27 April 2004
This book argues for the transformative potential for philosophy and political practice of the thought of Maurice Blanchot. It traces Blanchot's complex negotiations of the thought of Kojève, Heidegger, Bataille and Levinas, which allow him to develop his distinctive account of the work of art and his account of the opening to the other person. Blanchot's Communism also examines the significance of Blanchot's interventions in French political life, in particular, his participation in the Events of May 1968.

5.0 out of 5 stars Political Blanchot 29 Aug 2004
By A Customer
This book is a significant addition to Blanchot scholarship. Beautifully written, original and philosophically engaged, it makes clear Blanchot's importance for current thought about the possibility of the political.
