24. Le corps sans tête est fermé sur lui-même. Il attaché ses muscles entre eux, accroche ses organes les uns aux autres. La tête est simple, combinaison d’alvéoles et de liquides dans une triple enveloppe.

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

24. A headless body’s closed in on itself. It ties its muscles together, hooks its organs up to one another. The head’s simple, a combination of alveoli and liquids in a triple envelope.

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

24. Il corpo senza testa è chiuso in se stesso. Attacca i propri mu­scoli tra loro, aggancia i propri organi gli uni agli altri. La testa è semplice, combinazione di alveoli e di liquidi entro un triplo involucro.

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