Benda Hofmeyr is currently affiliated to the department of philosophy, University of Pretoria, South Africa. She lived and worked in the Netherlands while completing her doctoral studies and postdoctoral research. She still maintains strong collaborative ties with the Radboud University Nijmegen where she obtained her doctoral degree in philosophy on the work of Foucault and Levinas. Her research interests fall within the broad ambit of contemporary continental philosophy (especially thinkers following in the wake of Heidegger with emphasis on post-structuralism and phenomenology) with an enduring fascination for the inextricable entanglement of the ethical and the political. At present, she is reflecting on the entanglement of European and non-Western, especially post-colonial African philosophy and the possibility of a dialogue across these divergent yet fundamentally intertwined traditions of thought.

This is an intriguing and deeply conceptualized book which reflects critical competence in the theoretical traditions it invokes and a command of the nuanced intellectual and scholarly field it hopes to engage.— Sam Binkley, Professor of Sociology, Emerson College
