About this item

The French title is , from the word , which designates the entire, limitless usage of a possession with the twofold connotation of appropriation and pleasure carried to its height, says Nancy. Hence its usage is divided into two distinct values: the legal meaning of complete ownership of a possession, and the sensual meaning of a delectation or of voluptuousness--exclusively sexual voluptuousness following the usage that is dominant today in European French. Thus the noun is used less to designate a state than the action or movement of , enjoying--a verb that has also become mostly specialized in a sexual sense. The interview explores whether we are alone in , from animal instinct to desire of the other: how to go from , toward infinity and beyond: whether there is an art of , the condemnation of , and from profit to consumption/consummation: whether it is possible to enjoy everything.
