In short, Cutrofello has crafted a thoughtful, provocative book about both Shakespeare and modern philosophy—one which in many ways takes its bearings both from the play’s opening line (‘Who’s there?’) and from the prince’s final words (‘the rest is silence’). Historians of modern philosophy and lovers of Shakespeare’s work in general will find much in this book to ponder profitably.—The Review of Metaphysics—
This book is a spectacular intellectual performance. Andrew Cutrofello, Professor of Philosophy at Loyola University Chicago (and author of Continental Philosophy), takes the reader on a joyride through the twists and turns of Hamlet’s negativities; his melancholy; his negative faith, his nihilism; his tarrying; and his non-existence.
