"The most dangerous philosopher in the West." - Adam Kirsch, The New Republic "Addictively eclectic ... He contrives to leave the reader, as usual, both exhilarated and disoriented, standing in the middle of a scorched plain strewn with the rubble of smashed idols." - Steven Poole, Guardian "A wealth of political and philosophical insight." - Terry Eagleton, TLS "Exhilarating, inspiring, thought-provoking." - David Schneider, Prospect
