Nancy, Jean-luc. Corpus

Quick notes:

  • the body must touch down (11)
  • Writing: to touch on extremity (12)
  • Nothing else happens to writing, then, if something should happen to it, except touching. More precisely: touching the body … Writing touches the body by essence … that’s where it’s touching (13)
  • points of tangency, touches (14)

And Derrida, On Touching: “touching,” the lexicon of touch, strikes a grammatical pose and heads off on quite diverse rhetorical sidepaths. It carries a semantic tenor whose spector seems to obey a subtle and ironic play, both discreet and virtuoso (60).
