12. Le corps peut se faire parlant, pensant, rêvant, imaginant. Il sent tout le temps quelque chose. Il sent tout ce qui est corporel. Il sent les peaux et les pierres, les métaux, les herbes, les eaux et les flammes. Il n’arrête pas de sentir.

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

12. A body can become speaking, thinking, dreaming, imagining. It always senses something. It senses everything corporeal. It senses skins and stones, metals, grasses, waters, and flames. It doesn’t stop sensing.

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

12. Il corpo può farsi parlante, pensante, sognante, immaginante. Sente sempre qualcosa. Sente tutto ciò che è corporeo. Sente le pelli e le pietre, i metalli, le erbe, le acque e le fiamme. Non smette mai di sentire.

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