8. The soul is material, made of entirely different matter, matter that has no place, size, or weight. But it’s material, very subtly. And so it drops out of sight.

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

8. L’âme est matérielle, d’une tout autre matière, une matière qui n’a ni place, ni taille, ni poids. Mais elle est matérielle, très subtilement. Aussi échappe-t-elle à la vue.

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

8. L’anima è materiale, di una materia completamente differente, una materia che non ha luogo, né taglia, né peso. Ma è mate¬riale, molto sottilmente. È così che sfugge alla vista.

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