7. The soul is extended everywhere along the body, says Descartes; it is entirely everywhere all along it, on its very surface, insinuated within it, and slipped into it, infiltrated, impregnating, tentacular, inflating, modeling, omnipresent.

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

7. L’âme est étendue partout au travers du corps, dit Descartes, elle est toute entière partout le long de lui, à même lui, insinuée en lui, glissée, infiltrée, imprégnante, tentaculaire, insufflante, modelante, omniprésente.

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

7. L’anima è estesa ovunque attraverso il corpo, dice Descartes, per tutta intera la sua lunghezza, direttamente su di lui, in­sinuata in lui, scivolata, infiltrata, impregnante, tentacolare, insufflante, modellante, onnipresente.

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