Editorial Reviews

Review

What is it about drawing that might attract a philosopher’s eye? Many things no doubt but not least, there is the (literally) unthinkable movement by which something begins to take shape. Jean-Luc Nancy’s approach in The Pleasure in Drawing moves beyond art-historical categories and conceptual schemas to touch on precisely that: he considers the ‘formative force’ of drawing, not in terms of its formal achievement but in terms of the pleasures afforded by its constant beginning―pleasures of attraction, sense, permanent interruption, tension and intensity. A book full of dazzling insights, imaginative curves and provocative renewals.---―Sarah Clift, University of King’s College --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

About the Author

Jean-Luc Nancy is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Université Marc Bloch, Strasbourg. His wide-ranging thought is developed in many books, including Expectation: Philosophy, Literature; The Possibility of a World; The Banality of Heidegger; The Disavowed Community; and, with Adèle Van Reeth, Coming (all Fordham).

Philip Armstrong is Associate Professor in the Department of Comparative Studies at The Ohio State University. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
