In this landmark volume, Blanchot sustains a dialogue with a number of thinkers whose contributions have marked turning points in the history of Western thought and have influenced virtually all the themes that inflect the contemporary literary and philosophical debate today.
“Blanchot waits for us still to come, to be read and reread. . . I would say that never as much as today have I pictured him so far ahead of us.” Jacques Derrida
