Product description

Review

L'avenement du corps belongs to another genre: the philosophical essay, illustrated with an abundance of striking - if rarely sourced - data, and delivered with an intellectual mordancy and crisp literary eclat that remain, even today, peculiarly French. -- Perry Anderson

Offers much food for thought.

Mr. Juvin s book is being read attentively by philosophers and politicians, because it warns that pretty much all the values we consider human or humanist are collapsing If we accept Mr. Juvin s argument, the trinity of western ideals ( liberty, equality, fraternity ) is in the course of being replaced by another one ( health, security, pleasure ). --Christopher Caldwell

The Coming of the Body belongs to another genre: the philosophical essay, illustrated with an abundance of striking data, and delivered with an intellectual mordancy and crisp literary eclat that remain, even today, peculiarly French. --Perry Anderson

"Offers much food for thought."--"The Complete Review"

"Stylish and bracing autopsy of postmodern corporalism."--Steve Poole, "Guardian"
