Desire, Dialectic, and Otherness
An Essay on Origins, Second Edition
Imprint: Cascade Books
"What splendid news that William Desmond's admirable, insightful, engaging, and--because of its Hegelian involvements--exasperating book is republished! It invites reflection on those conversations with others in which we become other to ourselves. . . . Desmond's book initiates just such a badly needed conversation with his readers."
--Alasdair MacIntyre, Professor Emeritus, University of Notre Dame
"At the time of its publication over twenty years ago Desire, Dialectic, and Otherness represented the appearance of a truly important and original philosophical voice. It exhibited critical mastery of the entire philosophical tradition and a rare ability both to sift through it and to penetrate to its original and originating core. It was a portend of much to come. And in hindsight, one can see in this still amazingly fresh work the seeds of Desmond's great trilogy in metaphysics, which has made him one of the essential philosophers of his generation."
--Cyril O. Regan, Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame
