2014 January – The philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy created two news indices (n. 60 and n. 61) based on the meeting he had with AMAE and De Pinto during the workshop in Freiburg, Germany. He wrote two more indices related to sex and gender (which was a missing topic on the first edition). The Birmingham University immediately offered to support the project with a possible publication by “ARTicle Press” with the aim to re-launch the original “58 indices sur le corps” plus the new 2 indices.
2013 December – The philosopher Jean-Luc Nancy agreed to record himself reading the whole of the indices and offered exclusive copyright to Amae/De Pinto.The recording, a 45-minute session of slow reading, has been made in French which is Mr. Nancy’s native language and it will be used for further developments in 2014.
