Some Book Reviews

1. From Symposium: Richard A. Cohen, Levinasian Meditations: Ethics, Philosophy, and Religion. Pittsburgh: Duquesne University Press, 2010; 379 pages. ISBN: 978-0820704333.

2. David Nirberg in The New Republic on Peter E. Gordon, Continental Divide: Heidegger, Cassirer, Davos (Harvard University Press, 2010).

3. Keith Ansell Pearson in the NDPR on François Raffoul, The Origins of Responsibility, Indiana University Press, 2010, 341pp., $24.95 (pbk), ISBN 9780253221735.

I should note, overall this is an excellent review, but Pearson does go in for the kind of thing I hate reading in a review: despite covering six philosophers and three hundred years of work on ethics, Raffoul should have also covered x, y, and z… A writer can’t cover everything!

4. Here’s a book that came out of a conference I attended a couple of years ago in Melbourne (my own paper was on African Philosophy as neither analytic nor Continental): Jack Reynolds, James Chase, James Williams, and Edwin Mares (eds.), Postanalytic and Metacontinental: Crossing Philosophical Divides, Continuum, 2010, 255pp., $120.00 (hbk), ISBN 9780826424419.
