La vie sans corps, un problème politique

Abstract : This article is an essay on the relation between a phenomenology of the body centered on the experience of the alterity of the body, irreducible to the proper body, and a political phenomenology centered on the phenomenality of action, irreducible to an identification with the proper of a pre-established community and also to a production of this community. By interrogating this relation, I seek to obtain a certain theoretical articulation between plurality and alterity, that gives sense to a non-transcendental concept of plurality and corporality. This frame of theoretical reflection permits me to propose a critique of the conceptual matrix of the theory of biopower, but first and foremost to present a critique of neoliberalism. It is in this critique of neoliberalism that the reader will find the explication of the idea of a "life without body", and then see in which sense I can speak about bio-liberalism as being a political problem that makes necessary the theoretical articulation between the places of the body and the places of the political. The reader will find the names of E. Levinas, H. Arendt, E. Tassin and J. Rancière as the direct references of this reflection.
