What is included with this book?


"Brian Rotman's exciting new text not only adds to his previous work on signifying technology (zero, infinity), it expands his study of abstraction to encompass the construction of subjectivity itself. "Becoming Beside Ourselves" will open up all kinds of unexplored terrains, from grammatology to psychoanalysis, from the history of technology to the study of culture and religion."--Fredric Jameson, Duke University
