"Sharing comes down to this: what community reveals to me, in presenting to me my birth and death, is my existence outside myself. Which does not mean existence reinvested in or by community, as if community were another subject that would sublate me, in a dialectical or communal mode. Community does not sublate the finitude it exposes. Community itself, in sum, is nothing but this exposition. It is the community of finite beings, and as such is itself a finite community. In other words, not a limited community as opposed to an infinite or absolute community but a community of finitude, because finitude “is” communitarian, and because finitude alone is communitarian."
— Jean-Luc Nancy, The Inoperative Community
