"Buck-Morss enables us to discover the Islamists as our neighbours: neither as fundamentalist fanatics unable to cope with modernity, nor as the exotic authentic Other, but as people sharing the same global predicament as ourselves." - Slavoj Zizek "Buck-Morss's efforts to salvage the revolutionary critique of capitalism deserve both celebration and critical engagement."- Nick Stone, Radical Philosophy
