Praise

It takes a certain intrepid curiosity to pick up a book that is not of one’s universe—to plunge into an in-depth examination of a common phenomenon. But the payoff can be huge: a new meaning, new resonance accruing to something one previously paid barely any attention to. A Voice and Nothing More is such a book-a deeply academic yet readable inquiry into the nature of voice and its role as a bridge between nature and culture, subject and other, body and language, the personal and the political…Again, no worries: There will be no final exam; this is just life, examined carefully.—Los Angeles Times Book Review

The most telling, even thrilling, passages in this exacting book emphasize the intricate knitting together of body and soul in the voice…Though A Voice and Nothing More is driven throughout by ardent and formidable intelligence, Dolar is, like George Meridith’s A Later Alexandrian, mad for the kind of ‘mystic wryness’ that Lacanian theory so amply allows. Indeed, the last words of his book make it clear that he regards the mysteries of the voice as a kind of royal road to the Secret Doctrine of Psychoanalysis.
