A Man of Little Faith (SUNY series in Contemporary French by Michel Deguy,Christopher Elson,Jean-Luc Nancy

By Michel Deguy,Christopher Elson,Jean-Luc Nancy

A poetic and philosophical negotiation of the choices of atheism and non secular faith.

In A guy of Little Faith the French poet and thinker Michel Deguy displays at the lack of spiritual religion either for my part and culturally. upset not just with the oversimplifications of radical atheism but in addition with what he sees as an insipid sacralization of paintings because the impact of faith has waned, Deguy refuses to target loss or impossibility. as an alternative he actively suspends trust, generating a poetic deconstruction that, although resolutely a-theistic, makes a plea for a secular piety and for the protection of the relics of faith for the realm to return. essays by way of Jean-Luc Nancy and a up to date interview with Deguy are incorporated, which show the effect and implications of Deguy’s ongoing mirrored image and its value inside his new release of French thought.

Michel Deguy is Professor Emeritus on the Université Paris eight and the writer of greater than 40 books.

Christopher Elson is affiliate Professor of French and Canadian stories at Dalhousie collage, Canada. he's the coeditor (with Michael Bishop) of Contemporary French Poetics and French Prose in 2000.
