ANTINOMIES: Marie Rebecchi, “Metamorphosis. A point of vi (s) ta

Emanuele Coccia, one of the most disruptive young Italian philosophers and already a guest of the Italian Cultural Institute of Montréal at the end of October 2019, comes out with another work: Métamorphoses (Paris 2020).

A body that hatches the pre-personal and pre-individual nucleus, very intimate and universal, of metamorphosis as the birth of all births, past and future. A body of everyone and nobody that becomes a free zone, a channel of passage from one life to another through a fluid movement that modifies "the mother, the child, the human species and also the planet".
