20. Les corps sont des différences. Ce sont donc des forces. Les esprits ne sont pas des forces : ce sont des identités. Un corps est une force différente et plusieurs autres. Un homme contre un arbre, un chien devant un lézard. Une baleine et une pieuvre. Une montagne et un glacier. Toi et moi.
From 58 Indices sur le corps et extension de l’âme. Éditions Nota bene, Québec, 2004.

20. Bodies are differences. Forces, therefore. Minds aren’t forces: they’re identities. A body’s a force different from several others. A man against a tree, a dog in front of a lizard. A whale and an octopus. A mountain and a glacier. You and me.
From Fifty-eight Indices on the Body (Corpus), Jean-Luc Nancy. New York, Fordham University Press, 2008.

20. I corpi sono differenze. Sono forze, dunque. Gli spiriti non sono forze: sono identità. Un corpo è una forza che differisce da tante altre. Un uomo contro un albero, un cane davanti a una lucertola. Una balena e una piovra. Una montagna e un ghiacciaio. Tu ed io.
From Jean-Luc Nancy, Indizi sul corpo. Ananke Edizioni, Torino, 2009
