About the Author

Alphonso Lingis is a professor emeritus of philosophy at Pennsylvania State University and the author of numerous books including The Imperative (Indiana, 1998), Dangerous Emotions (California, 2000), Trust (Minnesota, 2004), and most recently, Body Transformations (Routledge, 2005). He is also the preeminent English translator of Maurice Merleau-Ponty and Emmanuel Levinas. His translations include Merleau-Ponty's The Visible and the Invisible (1961) and Pierre Klossowski's Sade My Neighbor (1991), both published by Northwestern University Press.


This is a visceral, embodied phenomenology, blending Whitman with Merleau-Ponty, Levinas with Nietzsche. The First Person Singular is a splendid addition to the Lingis corpus. --David C. Wood, Vanderbilt University
