"[An] impressive inquiry. . . ."
--Philip Leonard," Time and Society"
"Lukacher's sweep is both broad and impressive as he traces the secret history of the idea of eternal recurrence from the pre-Socratics to Ovid, and Plotinus, and from Shakespeare to Hegel, Schelling, Nietzsche, Heidegger, and Derrida."
--Seminary Coop Bookstore
""Time-Fetishes" can be thought of as part of an impressive and consistent work in progress (rare these days), a work that manifests a will to return again and again to the troubled ground of its specters opened by the fissuring of Being and time."
--Herman Rapaport, "Modern Language Quarterly"
