Siting the Body
footnote 32

Nancy, J-L. The Birth to Presence: 36-47; see Agamben, G. The Coming Community: 54-55 - "This imperceptible trembling of the finite that makes its limits indeterminate and allows it to blend, to make itself whatever, is the tiny displacement that everything must accomplish in the messianic world. Its beatitude is that of a potentiality that comes only after the act, of matter that does not remain beneath the form, but surrounds it with a halo of a surplus that is not a superadded portion but the outfolding of matter."
