"Shea’s purpose is not to write an intellectual history of Cynicism, but rather, and more impressively, to perform a critical analysis of the role of Cynicism in the development of modern thought. No one else has attempted such an ambitious examination of modern philosophy’s debt toward the Cynics."(Marie-Hélène Huet, Princeton University)
"Shea's book is an impressive work of comparative literature, encompassing classical Greek philosophy, the Enlightenment in both France and Germany, and the postmodern movement... This book provides fascinating, insightful reading on a much maligned or belittled school of thought that nevertheless seems to retain the capacity to invigorate widely divergent philosophers across the centuries."(Edward Ousselin French Studies)
"In her appealingly ambitious study of Cynicism in the eighteenth century, Louisa Shea perceptively articulates the tensions that have long structured debates around the social effects of philosophical critique."(Natania Meeker Eighteenth-Century Fiction)
