"This volume is true to the spirit of open engagement in relation to matters of ultimate concern. In their introduction, the editors cite a quote from Kieslowski that wonderfully expresses this openness: 'Both the deep believer and the habitual skeptic experience toothaches in exactly the same way. I always try to speak about toothaches--always. If I am successful in talking about toothaches, I think everyone will understand me.' Indeed, this collection as a whole speaks to this experience of 'toothaches' that afflicts us all. Like Kieslowski himself, the various contributors of this collection are willing to grope in the dark as they explore some of the most fundamental but uncharted facets of the human condition." (―John Caruana Ryerson University)
“This is a strong and timely collection that fills a gap in the existing English-language scholarship on a very significant work, and the important issues it raises.” (―Paul Coates University of Western Ontario)
