Product description


"Karatani's Isonomia and the Origins of Philosophy is a deceptively complex work that offers numerous transdisciplinary insights for the philosophically initiated and uninitiated alike. And while its true value may be its intellectual historical angle - namely, its fascinating re-presentation of the history of Greek philosophy - Isonomia is a very worthwhile part of Karatani's broader effort to offer readers an illuminating systematic perspective from which to view our contemporary political and philosophical situation." -- Brendan Harvey * Marx & Philosophy Review of Books * "A work of historical importance, this book should be read by all who are interested in the innumerable conflicts that beset the contemporary world. Essential." -- J. A. Fischel * Choice *
