Example text

Instead of constructing an ensemble, we arranged texts two by two: first, on the subject of unity itself; second, on the subject of construction—in other words, once on the subject of the differentiation of the “one” and once on the subject of its constitution. One of us (JLN) has put forward a text to which a text of the other (AB) responds. We do not conclude: We open up, we attempt. Dans quel(s) monde(s) vivonsnous? ” By which crowd, which pack, which fray are we being carried away? Can one even identify, distinguish, and disentangle such a web?
