About the Author

Kaja Silverman is Class of 1940 Professor of Rhetoric and Film at the University of California, Berkeley. Her most recent books are Speaking About Godard (with Harun Farocki) and The Threshold of the Visible World.


"This original and important book demonstrates the inseparability of philosophy and psychoanalysis for any serious attempt to answer a question so profoundly relevant to the very nature of our being that it does not 'belong' to any one discipline: the question, as Silverman puts it, of what it means for the world that each one of us is in it. The book has a remarkable clarity; Silverman makes the most complex argument seem like a perfectly natural, and absolutely necessary, movement of thought." - Leo Bersani, University of California, Berkeley
