53. Le corps fabrique l’auto-immunité de l’âme, au sens technique de ce terme médical : il défend l’âme contre elle-même, il l’empêche d’être toute à sa spiritualité intime. Il provoque un rejet dans l’âme de l’âme elle-même.

 

From 58 Indices sur le corps et extension de l’âme. Éditions Nota bene, Québec, 2004.

53. The body fabricates the soul’s auto-immunity, in the technical sense of this medical term: it protects the soul against itself; it prevents it from retreating entirely into its intimate spirituality. It provokes, within the soul, a rejection of the soul.

 

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

53. Il corpo fabbrica l’auto-immunità dell’anima, nel senso tecni­co di questo termine medico: difende l’anima da se stessa, le impedisce di appartenere interamente alla sua intima spiritua­lità. Provoca nell’anima un rigetto dell’anima stessa.

 

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