In this interview, Armstrong and Smith invite Nancy to go further in his reading of philosophers such as Rousseau and Foucault. In that respect, this interview presents Nancy’s view on power, a topic that Nancy seldom talks about in his own works. Here, Nancy argues that it is not power itself that is problematic, but the image of power. The question of (pre)positions, again our title for the special issue, is at stake too in this interview: for we will see Nancy insisting that politics must not be limit of sense, community, life, or the world; what politics has determined, Nancy argues, must be surpassed.
