This is the second major volume in Jean-Luc Nancy's long-announced project of the "deconstruction of Christianity," one of the major projects in philosophy of religion in recent decades.
Jean-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 Possibility of a World; The Disavowed Community; Ego Sum; and, with Adele Van Reeth, Coming (all Fordham). John McKeane is Laming Junior Fellow of The Queen's College, Oxford. His thesis addressed the fragmentary writing of Maurice Blanchot, and he is the co-editor of Blanchot Romantique.
"Nancy pursues his explorations of Dis-Enclosure: The Deconstruction of Christianity by treating the old and complex Christian 'legacy' in an original and stimulating manner, thereby demonstrating a remarkable mastery of and erudition in the fields of Christian theology and of the philosophy of religion. But he also takes some important new steps in this trajectory that will fascinate the reader." Laurens ten Kate, University for Humanistics, Utrecht, The Netherlands
