L'altro a fianco e la distensione del tempo

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Jean-Luc Nancy’s deconstruction of Christianity implies a revision of the classical phenomenological paradigm of otherness. The other is not what is in front of the self, but what is sideways. The self opens itself up for such an other without removing the mediation and the difference which structure the relationship between selfness and otherness. Deconstruction of Christianity means a new qualitative determination of the time of the world, a metamorphosis of the self as distension towards the otherness, and a reconfiguration of the relationship divine/human as a dialogue, in which the divine gives up its ontological supremacy in favor of the human being.
