This introductory chapter traces the evolution of the various hypotheses concerning the upheavals that modernity has produced in the field of philosophical anthropology, as collected in this volume. It credits the formation of this book to its initial conception as a response to a question raised by Jean-Luc Nancy—“Who comes after the subject?” The chapter also summarizes the contents of the book in brief—breaking it down into three paths which help to interrogate the utterances of the subject of philosophy (autoreference, community, judgment)—and provides an overview into the theoretical approaches that inform the studies conducted in the following chapters.

Keywords:   modernity, philosophical anthropology, Jean-Luc Nancy, originary subject, citizen-subject, autoreference, community, judgment, theoretical approaches
