Emmanuel Levinas, On Escape

Jean-Luc Nancy, Corpus

“The social aspect of shame is fainter in nausea, and all the shameful manifestations of our body, than it is in any morally wrong act. The shameful manifestations of our bodies compromise us in a manner totally different than does the lie or dishonesty. The fault consists not in the lack of propriety but almost in the very fact of having a body, of being there.”

– Emmanuel Levinas, On Escape
