Reviews

"Nothing is wide-ranging, and the essays are rich and well researched, drawing on all sides, including analytic philosophical approaches to Buddhism."--Alphonso Lingis, Pennsylvania State University "Choice"
"Nothing's overarching contribution clarifies the problematics of Buddhist critical theory as the intra-active, performative effects of a mutualizing ethico-ontoepistemology. This invites critical mindfulness of the immediate existential-material circumstances that may at once inspire and constrain any given attempt/location of Buddhist critical theory."--Avital Ronell, New York University "Religious Studies Review"
"I have contemplated and endured 'nothing' for so long that it did not seem right to break my practice or offer other readers something like insight, possibly a moment of sense making and affirmation. But I break out of my trance to assert the emphatic necessity of this book, so erudite without loading us down, relentless in its ability to resignify. Sassy, brilliant, a genuine engagement with and of thought, this work tunes us to a thrilling, endorphinating way of thinking: my drug of choice."--Avital Ronell, New York University "Speculative Non-Buddhism"
"The reader will delight in two important aspects of Nothing: a multitude of contemporary Buddhist responses to the great political and social changes that have affected Asian countries--imperialism, colonialism, communism, corporate capitalism--and rigorous elaboration of Lacanian psychoanalysis with Buddhist psychology. This book is exceptional."--Alphonso Lingis, Pennsylvania State University
