Adoration
By

Rating
This second volume in Nancy's The Deconstruction of Christianity explores the stance or bearing that would be appropriate for us now, in the wake of the dis-enclosure of religion and the retreat of God: that of adoration. Adoration is stretched out toward things, but without phenomenological intention. In our present historical time, we have come to see relation itself as the divine. The address and exclamation--the salut!--that constitutes adoration celebrates this relation: both the relation among all beings that the world is and what is beyond relation, the outside of the world that opens us in the midst of the world. A major contribution to the contemporary philosophy of religion, Adoration clarifies and builds upon not only Dis-Enclosure, the first volume in this project, but also Nancy's other previous writings on sense, the world, and the singular plurality of being.

Reviews

"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
