For those who already have an interest in these debates, the anthology makes some significant contributions. A primary strength of the book is that, reading essays side-by-side on thinkers that you would prima facie rarely associate with one another, you come to see overlapping themes regarding subjectivity across philosophical schools.... This book is a[n]...important contribution to a central debate of our times.
— Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
In Subjectivity: Ancient and Modern, editors R. J. Snell and Steven F. McGuire have assembled a high-quality group of scholars to take up the philosophical and political roots of the problematic question not only of "subjective rights" but of subjectivity more broadly conceived.... This volume would be of obvious appeal to anyone interested in the question of the modern subject and the manner with which a variety of premodern voices can help both to understand it and to bring out its better potential.
