What's These Worlds Coming To?
One of the world's leading philosophers and an emerging astrophysicist revive the ancient philosophical practice of cosmology for our time. Jean-Luc Nancy and Aurélien Barrau's collaboration is a study of life, plural worlds, and what the authors call the struction of new worlds. It is also a radical revisioning of post-structuralist thought (from deconstruction to struction) and contemporary physics (from a universe to a multiverse).
Jean-Luc Nancy is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Université Marc Bloch, Strasbourg. His wide-ranging thought is developed in many books, including Portrait, The Possibility of a World, The Banality of Heidegger, The Disavowed Community, and Corpus.
