9780816626113: The Sense of the World - AbeBooks - Jean-Luc Nancy: 0816626111

An essential exploration of sense and meaning. Is there a "world" anymore, let alone any "sense" to it? Acknowledging the lack of meaning in our time, and the lack of a world at the center of meanings we try to impose, Jean-Luc Nancy presents a rigorous critique of the many discourses-from philosophy and political science to psychoanalysis and art history-that talk and write their way around these gaping absences in our lives.
