E-Book review:

. . . [A] brief siesta of an inquiry into slumber.-Toby Lichtig

What happens to the subject when sleep descends? If philosophy has always supposed consciousness, what happens in the fall of sleep, when intention, will, deliberation and its correlates are suspended? Nancy traces, not an absence of subjectivity, but another formation of the I in this meditative text -- part thesis and part reverie, as much a nocturne as a treatise -- and guides us toward the province of Morpheus.-Charles Shepherdson

A quarter-century ago Jean-Luc Nancy remarked that Sleep, perhaps, has never been philosophical. Philosophy, after all, ruins sleep. In The Fall of Sleep Nancy explores the singularities of sleep as (among other things) an experience of freedom and a sojourn for lovers. The book is exemplary of Nancy's practice of finite thinking-thinking without concepts, categories, and other philosophical machinery. And in the bargain we have another superb translation by Charlotte Mandell.-Gerald L. Bruns

Jean-Luc Nancy is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Universit Marc Bloch,Strasbourg. Among the most recent of his many books to be published in English are Corpus; The Ground of the Image; Listening; Dis-Enclosure: The Deconstruction of Christianity; Noli me tangere: On the Raising of the Body; On the Commerce of Thinking: Of Books and Bookstores; and The Truth of Democracy (all Fordham).

CHARLOTTE MANDELL has translated over twenty books, including several books for Fordham: Peter Szendy's Listen: A History of Our Ears and Jean-Luc Nancy's Listening. Her most recent translation is The Kindly Ones by Jonathan Littell.
