Abstract: Th is article aims to be a confrontation with Nancy’s ‘deconstruction of Christianity.’ Its arguments are instructed by Derrida’s thesis in his On Touching—Jean-Luc Nancy, in which he speaks of the ‘destructive eff ects’ of Nancy’s own thinking. One such eff ect is, according to Derrida, Nancy’s complicity with some form of metaphysical thinking. Th e conclusion of this article therefore aims to expound on just what sort of metaphysics returns in Nancy’s work and proposes a more viable—and phenomenological—option with regard to the question of what is to be done with the relics of the Christian tradition through forging an opening towards Levinas’ and Merleau-Ponty’s philosophies.
