"There is much to prize and admire in Art before the Law. Ruth Ronen's arguments are clear and precise, her scholarship is sound and up to date, and her thesis is ground-breaking." -- Alenka Zupancic, Professor of Philosophy and Psychoanalysis, European Graduate School "Art before the Law is work of rigorous, original, and trenchant thought which engages with a broad sweep of texts, bringing exciting interpretations of classic works of psychoanalysis, philosophy, and literature." -- Dominique Hecq, Department of Media and Communication, Swinburne University of Technology
