Disenchanted with the dangerous simplifications of radical atheism and with what he sees as an insipid sacralization of art in the wake of religion, Deguy is not satisfied with focusing on a loss or an impossibility.

Instead he actively suspends belief in a palinodic gesture and works through the consequences of this more complex and productive movement. Deguy s poetic deconstruction and the resolute a-theism it implies constitute a plea for an earthly piety and for the preservation of the relics of religion for the world to come. Two essays by Jean-Luc Nancy and a recent interview with Deguy are included. They reveal the impact and implications of Deguy s ongoing reflection and its significance within his generation of French thought.
