After Fukushima

The Equivalence of Catastrophes

Jean-Luc Nancy and Translated by Charlotte Mandell

A Fordham University Press Publication

  • -This book presents the text of a video-lecture given by Nancy in 2011 at the invitation of the International Research Center for Philosophy at the University of Tokyo. It therefore is lecture style--philosophical, but quite accessible.
  • The author's theme is catastrophe in an age of globalization, when any local catastrophe is immediately propagated around the world through being part of a globalized complex.
  • The little book is thus a dense and powerful essay on our times and civilization.
