"This is an innovative and original analysis. It does not fall easily into any one category, nor should it. This book stands alone. It is a self-contained polemic, a railing against the Enlightenment and modernism. However, because it has a broad argument, it should have a broad audience. It will be of interest to students of philosophy, sociology, politics, anthropology and cultural studies." - Jonathan Joseph, Department of Politics and International Relations at the University of Kent at Canterbury
"This is a sophisticated, acerbic analysis of Western thought. It sometimes exaggerates, but never misreads. It forces us to reassess what modernity has wrought in a powerful critique, akin in spirit to Fanon's Wretched of the Earth."
- Immanuel Wallerstein, Yale University
"A passionate invitation for us to consider the deformations and dangers of post-Enlightenment modernism and our own potential to return to a better world."
- Roger Owen, Harvard University
