A New Work by Quentin Meillassoux

Check out this review of Quentin Meillassoux's The Number and The Siren:

Quentin Meillassoux and the Crackpot Sublime

Here's an excerpt, "Now when I put it like that, it sounds crazy. When one reads it as part of Meillassoux’s tightly constructed argument, it also sounds crazy, but in a different way: It is undeniable even as it seems impossible. It works like a surprising “big reveal” in a detective story, the kind that prompts a joyful cry of “No way!” There are other similar moments throughout The Number and the Siren, which has the kind of literary quality I have come to associate with French philosophy at its best."

My own review to follow once I've actually cracked the book.
