Abstract

Abstract:

Jean-Luc Nancy takes the recent return of attention to mimesis as a starting point for considering the relationship between philosophy and literature, especially in terms of “une mimesis littéraire vraiment du monde dans lequel on est.” Reflecting on his lifelong philosophical project, Nancy stresses the constitutive connection between mimesis and the call for “un savoir vrai, un savoir juste.” Nancy discusses his work and life with Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe, his involvement in the linguistic turn, structuralism, and deconstruction, addressing topics at the heart of his philosophical work – such as the subject, community, myth, fascism, and democracy – and ending with reflections on the Covid-19 pandemic and the sharing it generates.
