Reviews

"The Crisis of Modernity provides an indispensable manual for scholars approaching research on the specifics of Del Noce's thought and very valuable insights into Italian and European philosophy of the twentieth century." Luca Cottini, Department of Romance Languages and Literatures, Villanova University "The selection of essays collected in The Crisis of Modernity now offers to an English speaking audience a glimpse of the richness and fecundity of Del Noce's thought and its relevance in this global society of the third millennium." - Voegelin View "Carefully chosen to provide a representative selection of Del Noce's mature thinking without being too eclectic. The translation is excellent, and very readable. Lancellotti has also somewhat lightened the burden of Del Noce's constant commentary on and dialogue with various Italian movements and thinkers by providing an abundance of clarifying footnotes. Del Noce's insights into the cultural phenomena of technologism, scientism, positivism, nihilism, gnosticism, the destruction of the family, the forgetfulness of authority, the impoverishment of religion, and the obsession with power, are still fresh, and make the book profoundly interesting for anyone living in the contemporary West." - Review of Metaphysics
