About this product
- DescriptionIn this book, the philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy examines the nature of catastrophes in the era of globalization and techlogy. Can a catastrophe be an isolated occurrence? Is there such a thing as a natural catastrophe when all of our techlogies-nuclear energy, power supply, water supply-are necessarily implicated, drawing together the biological, social, ecomic, and political? Nancy examines these questions and more. Exclusive to this English edition are two interviews with Nancy conducted by Danielle Cohen-Levinas and Yuji Nishiyama and Yotetsu Tonaki.
- Author BiographyJean-Luc Nancy is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Universite Marc Bloch, Strasbourg. His wide-ranging thought is developed in many books, including The Banality of Heidegger; The Disavowed Community; Ego Sum: Corpus, Anima, Fabula; and, with Adele Van Reeth, Coming (all Fordham). Charlotte Mandell has translated more than forty books and is the recipient of numerous awards.
