Item description for The Community of Those Who Have Nothing in Common (Studies in Continental Thought) by Alphonso Lingis...

..". thought-provoking and meditative, Lingis's work is above all touching, and offers a refreshingly idiosyncratic antidote to the idle talk that so often passes for philosophical writing." --Radical Philosophy

..". striking for the clarity and singularity of its styles and voices as well as for the compelling measure of genuine philosophic originality which it contributes to questions of community and (its) communication." --Research in Phenomenology

Articulating the author's journeys and personal experiences in the idiom of contemporary continental thought, Alphonso Lingis launches a devastating critique, pointing up the myopia of Western rationalism. Here Lingis raises issues of undeniable urgency.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Community of Those Who Have Nothing in Common (Studies in Continental Thought)?

Lingis beyond the cutting-edge  Apr 3, 1998
While we all anxiously await Lingis' _The Imperative_ (forthcoming, Indiana Univ. Press), which promises to be his most systematic philosophical work to date, _The Community of Those Who Have Nothing in Common_ offers a tantalizing glimpse of where 21st century philosophy might take us. Lingis is probably the most serious philosopher of the American "Continental thought" scene, and BY FAR its most talented literary stylist. The time to discover his books is NOW.
On the taboo of the unknown...  Oct 5, 1997
This collection of essays is perhaps Alphonso Lingis' most reader-friendly work. The main force behind this book is the idea that individuality is linked to mortality. Each essay is connected by theme, and the final "chapter" presents the problem of death: possibilities left behind, unfulfilled and almost meaningless in the face of "the end." I highly recommend this book to anyone who has read Georges Bataille.
