The Double Down series continues with two men, and some interesting issues they contend with—­two stories, two authors, one book. There was a time when Pete felt like he had the world in the palm of his hands, but lately everything is falling apart. His wife is growing cold, his business is in trouble, and even his friends show him nothing but contempt. Then a neighbor introduces him to paleo—­the old way of eating, exercising, and even communing with the ancient sprits of the Neanderthals. All it takes is a little work, a little discipline, and a little blood sacrifice, and mysterious powers are within his grasp, but there's a price Pete never expected. It's a dark tale of terror, revenge, and suburban fads.­Eric can sell insurance, but he can't sell anyone on what he knows for a fact: this world is about to go down in flames. Eric is forced to prep in secret. His wife won't listen, neither will his clients.

Dans Le Pas au-­delà, Maurice Blanchot fait le constat suivant : « Derrière le discours parle le refus de discourir, comme derrière la philosophie parlerait le refus de philosopher : parole non parlante, violente, se dérobant, ne disant rien et tout à coup criant. » Cette résistance de Blanchot à l’égard de la philosophie montre les limites de la qualification d’une œuvre, qu’elle soit philosophique, littéraire ou poétique. L’écriture philosophique est-­elle plus ou moins philosophique dans le fragment d’Héraclite, le système d’Hegel ou l’aphorisme de Nietzsche ? De tout cela, Blanchot semble se moquer. Et qu’importe de savoir si Blanchot est philosophe. Notre intention dans cet ouvrage est ailleurs. Elle est dans le souhait d’interroger le « et », chacun avec ses lectures et ses convictions. Ce « et » dans Blanchot et la philosophie, faut-­il l’envisager comme une addition, une disjonction, une impossibilité, un ou bien ou bien, un ni ni, une localisation... ? Où est Blanchot en . . .
