Coming

With: Adèle Van Reeth
Translator: Charlotte Mandell

Paperback

Price: $22.00

Overview

Coming is a lyrical, erudite examination of the French notion of jouissance. How did jouissance evolve from referring to the pleasure of possessing a material thing (property, wealth) to the pleasure of orgasm, from appropriation to dis-appropriation, from consumption to consummation? The philosophers Adèle van Reeth and Jean-Luc Nancy engage in a lively dialogue, ranging from consumerism to video games to mysticism and from Spinoza, Hegel, andAugustine to the Marquis de Sade, Marguerite Duras, and Henry Miller. Four additional essays are new to the American edition.

Reviews
A stimulating analysis, Nancy's Coming shows sex and sexuality to be crucial understanding central aspects of his work. Moving from the prurient to the profound, Coming is a scintillating read for anyone interested in the limits of desire, the loneliness that pervades much of contemporary culture, or what love means today.–-Peter Gratton, Memorial University of Newfoundland
