Editorial Reviews


“An engaging and original piece of work—a very good book. Lines of Thought will take a respected place amongst interdisciplinary studies of philosophy.”—Jonathan Ree, Middlesex University

“An excellent, highly disciplined reading; a truly interdisciplinary achievement. One of the most striking qualities of this book is the way in which Brodsky Lacour opens up broader historical, philosophical, and literary perspectives, pertaining particularly to present discussions of Modernity and deconstruction, by strictly pursuing her rigorous reading of Descartes’s and Perrault’s texts. The basis for such a mediation is the author’s excellent literary analyses and her impressive understanding of philosophical and mathematical issues. In thinking through the figures of line and architecture in and as thought and discourse, she unfolds a certain construction of modern subjectivity and contemporary theoretical problems in a highly illuminating way.”—Rainer Nagele, The Johns Hopkins University
