summary
Alphonso Lingis’s singular works of philosophy are not so much written as performed, and in The First Person Singular the performance is characteristically brilliant, a consummate act of philosophical reckoning.  Lingis’s subject here, aptly enough, is the subject itself, understood not as consciousness but as embodied, impassioned, active being.  His book is, at the same time, an elegant cultural analysis of how subjectivity is differently and collectively understood, invested, and situated.
