22. Différents, les corps sont tous quelque peu difformes. Un corps parfaitement formé est un corps gênant, indiscret dans le monde des corps, inacceptable. C’est une épure, ce n’est pas un corps.
From 58 Indices sur le corps et extension de l’âme.
Éditions Nota bene, Québec, 2004.

22. Different, bodies are all somewhat deformed. A perfectly formed body is a disturbing, indiscreet body in the world of bodies, unacceptable. It’s a diagram, not a body.
From Fifty-eight Indices on the Body (Corpus), Jean-Luc Nancy. New York, Fordham University Press, 2008.

22. Differendo, i corpi sono tutti un po’ deformi. Un corpo perfettamente formato è un corpo imbarazzante, indiscreto nel mondo dei corpi, inaccettabile. È un’assonometria, non è un corpo.
From Jean-Luc Nancy, Indizi sul corpo. Ananke Edizioni, Torino, 2009
