Product Details


“Giacomo Marramao’s rare spirit of intellectual innovation has enlarged the thinking of his wide circle of admirers.”
—Homi Bhabha

“The work of Giacomo Marramao, in my opinion, is one of the most important contributions to the philosophical conversation today.”
—Étienne Balibar

“A remarkable book which makes a powerful and engaging contribution to contemporary debates on globalization and provides an original philosophical perspective for re-framing the question of the West.” —Adriana Cavarero, author of Horrorism: Naming Contemporary Violence

“A penetrating and incisive study of the economic, political, and ideological frameworks of our current global political landscape … this intelligent investigation is a worthy inheritance to the ideological terrain it discusses and is a significant contribution to the field of contemporary political philosophy.” Publisher’s Weekly

“[Marramao] engages in a wide ranging philosophical discussion that engages with the concept of the global articulated by such figures as Spengler, Jünger, Schmitt, and Heidegger; explores debates between liberalism and communitarianism; proposes the concept of world-modernity as a successor to nation-modernity; considers the question of identity as the reference point for political conflict; and argues for the formulation of a universal politics of difference to replace the Western notion of universal norms.” Book News

“Giacomo Marramao’s The Passage West is a whirlwind of a book, filled with provocative ideas and startling theoretical juxtapositions.”
—Martin Jay, Politica Comune
