“Armand is unafraid to ask the most basic questions, to go beyond the zone
in which most cultural discussions operate in order to ask what underlies
our capacity for thought, for imaging, for communication. Time and again he
takes his reader to the edge of what is thinkable, subjecting familiar
concepts to stringent analysis and casting an original light on old
debates.”–Derek Attridge
