Project:

Jean-Luc Nancy: Être singulier pluriel (French > Bulgarian)

Être singulier pluriel consists of six interrelated essays, which rearticulate the notion of being-with as a singular plurality/plural singularity and elaborate its implications for revealing the tacit totalizing scaffolding of important contemporary social and political problems. Its translation will introduce (1) Nancy’s magnum opus, (2) the theoretical basis of its importance for contemporary pluralist philosophy and (3) the socio-political dimension of the question on the conditions of possibility of community.
