  1. A body touched, touching, fragile, vulnerable, always changing, fleeing, ungraspable, evanescent under a caress or a blow, a body without a husk, a poor skin stretched over the cave where our shadow floats …

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


  1. Corps touché, touchant, fragile, vulnérable, toujours changeant, fuyant, insaisissable, évanescent sous la caresse ou sous le coup, corps sans écorce, pauvre peau tendue sur une caverne où flotte notre ombre…

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


  1. Corpo toccato, toccante, fragile, sempre cangiante, sfuggente, inafferrabile, evanescente sotto la carezza o il pugno, corpo senza scorza, povera pelle tesa su una caverna dove fluttua la nostra ombra…

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