"Lingis has an uncanny ability to make you sit up and take notice at the oddity of the world, how the experience of human nature and nature by far exceeds our theories. His writing is in synchrony with this excess; he interpolates personal anecdotes in ways I find utterly convincing and helpful, like jewels in a fishnet. Lingis is a unique voice in English language commentary." -- Michael Taussig
