Praise

“The central problem of contemporary philosophy is a drama with only two protagonists: Heidegger and Severino. It is an irreconcilable relationship between these two positions: an aut-aut.
—Massimo Cacciari, author of The Witholding Power

“Those who have been inspired by the likes of Heidegger, Sartre or Paul Tillich will want to peruse this first offering of [Severino] … If no one talks about metaphysics anymore, … Severino would argue that this is not because scientism or modernity has rendered it obsolete; in fact, quite the opposite. Science and technology are not a refutation of metaphysics, but the products of it.”
—Jon Morris, PopMatters
