"Truth and Singularity is an outstanding
philosophical exercise into the ethics of intersubjectivity that is
conducted in a "baroque fashion" (p.20) Visker's manifold
interpretations are thought provoking and prone to generate further
excursions into ontology and ethics."
(The Review of Metaphysics, November 2002)
