In the important volume The Restlessness of the Negative, which has been dedicated to Hegel, Jean-Luc Nancy rethinks the rapport between the ‘Herrschaft und Knechtschaft’ and ‘I’ - ‘other’ dialectical discourse. He does not enclose them within the dialectics of the negative but rather, he sees them within the realm of ‘restlessness’, within the movement of shifting that makes up the corporeal and singular form of every ‘I’. From the deconstruction of the paradigm of the subject, brought to light by Nancy in the volume Ego sum, it is apparent that the French philosopher intends to give importance to the value of speculation and seeks to extend the semantics of the concept of the body through a continuous and substantial dialogue between ancient and modern thought. Therefore, Nancy emphasizes the urgent need to think of the body outside of the ‘personal-impersonal’ dichotomy or the ‘bios-zoe’ concept and gives voice to the political, philosophical issues of our time.
