In his original and daring volume, Raphael Sassower invented something radically new and surprisingly, fulfilling a strong need that exists in the modern culture. Solo is quite a journey through familiar and recognizable external landscapes intervened with brave explorations of unknown and rarely explored internal dimensions of the human mind and soul. The author's honesty and skill in self-observation make his writing intimate and informative at the same time, and by the end of the journey, we are left with the gift of sharing the experience with the stranger who has shown us the new world, and we feel grateful and enriched. -- Olga Yahontova
Sassower's Solo left me breathless: a philosopher's cruelly honest report on encounters between cognitive formulations and recesses of the self, intimate world and outer reality, solitude of the individual and partnership of humanity. Sassower is at his best confronting human suffering and exploitation, addressing current politics and the economy of nations, and intimate relations. Solo makes a seemingly light reading, captivating and inviting the reader to celebrate with its author an exceptionally rare and extreme occasion. It is a dual excursion, touring both space and time, public spheres and private domains. Peregrinations through continents blend with wandering along cutting-edge philosophical shores, acute socio-cultural diagnoses intertwine with courageous personal insights. Sassower is a prolific philosopher; in Solo he is coming of age-a towering thinker. -- Nathaniel Laor, Tel-Aviv University
