Drawing from some of the most prominent voices in contemporarycontinental philosophy, Nancy Now addresses an impressiverange of Nancy s texts and motifs. The essays included heredemonstrate in new and demanding ways the continued timeliness theuntimely contemporaneity of Nancy s thinking. Philip Armstrong, Ohio State University This cutting-edge collection proves that Nancy is the thinker ofour time.
