"A very fine introduction to Nancy for advanced undergraduate and research students." Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews "Morin′s lucid overview of Nancy′s philosophy provides clear definitions of his key terms, teases out the complexity of his relationships to other thinkers, and demonstrates how his ontology of singular plurality informs his diverse range of concerns, from Christianity to politics, from embodiment to aesthetics." French Studies "Prof. Morin has done an excellent job. She is clearly sympathetic to this thinker and unfolds for us the complexities of his work, making it accessible without ever allowing us to underestimate its subtlety. Comprehensive and expertly done, this book stands to play a key role in the reception of Nancy′s opus." Anne O′Byrne, Stony Brook University "Morin gives a lucid and penetrating overview of Nancy′s philosophy, beginning with his highly original reworking of ontology and ranging from questions of politics and community to those of Christianity, embodiment, and art. Her indispensable account demonstrates the unique importance of Nancy′s thought for contemporary debate, its transformative power, and future potential." Ian James, University of Cambridge "In a systematic reading organized around key motifs in Jean–Luc Nancy′s thought –ontology, Christianity, community, politics, body, and art – Marie–Eve Morin provides an expert and luminous introduction to an important oeuvre, still to be discovered and explored. For such a task, Marie–Eve Morin′s fine book will prove to be an invaluable resource." François Raffoul, Louisiana State University
