Liste des gens que j’aime

Friday 12 May 2006


Making a list of the ones I love. (2006) When J. Goody and E Lévinas try to have a conversation.

Confronting the cognitive anthropology of Jack Goody to some levinassian concerns. The list, the table, the formula : making ideas into space, the system of concepts inherit from the spatial properties of the support of inscription. With the list starts categorisation. Making a list of those I love as a provocation to essence. All I got is a list of names, I kind of miss them all.
