6. L’âme est la forme d’un corps organisé, dit Aristote. Mais le corps est précisément ce qui dessine cette forme. Il est la forme de la forme, la forme de l’âme.

From 58 INDICES SUR LE CORPS et EXTENSION DE L’ÂME. Éditions Nota bene, Québec, 2004.

6.The soul is the form of an organized body, says Aristotle. But the body, precisely, is what draws this form. It’s the form of the form, the form of the soul.

From Fifty-eight Indices on the Body (Corpus)Jean-Luc Nancy. New York, Fordham University Press, 2008.

6. L’anima è la forma di un corpo organizzato, dice Aristotele. Ma il corpo è proprio ciò che disegna questa forma. È la forma della forma, la forma dell’anima.

From Jean-Luc Nancy, Indizi sul corpo. Ananke Edizioni, Torino, 2009
