Editorial Reviews


"Sam Weber has, over the years, established himself as one of the major critical thinkers of our time, a true philosopher of the event and of the medial condition. Weber extends our understanding of cognition and information networks as they have been mobilized in the wake of Sept. 11 and the 'war on terror.'...In addition to offering a way around the intellectual impasse of 'terror' as a political construct, the book provides an education in how to think philosophically about life and politics." - Emily Apter, New York University "An extraordinary book by one of our most distinguished literary and cultural theorists. Weber's main theme is that 'targeting' is an effort to overcome finitude - our human condition of being consigned to death, limited to singular times and places, and vulnerable to the workings of chance. By targeting an other (at the limit, by killing an other) we seek to evade the truth of our own condition." - Marc Redfield, Claremont Graduate University"
