QUEL CHE RESTA DEL MARGINE
CORPO, SALUTE E POLITICA IN JEAN-LUC NANCY
This article aims at interpreting the margins of political discourse in Jean-Luc Nancy’s philosophy in the light of his recent considerations about the COVID-19 pandemic. By focusing on Nancy’s theses in Ego sum and L’Impératif catégorique, I will first analyze the political notion of person and areality in the dialogue with Cartesian and Hegelian philosophy. Then, with reference to Être singulier pluriel, L’Intrus, La Communauté désoeuvrée and La Vérité de la démocratie, I will integrate Nancy’s recent articles on the global health crisis within an historical and philosophical framework. More generally, I aim to investigate Nancy’s reflections on body and health in the dialogue with the political notion of being-singular-plural, by emphasizing the problem associated with «our» responsibilities, rather than the faults of «others».
