By probing the relationship between the extra-philosophical grounds of philosophy and philosophy itself, Jason M. Wirth puts forward a fundamental meditation on the origin and nature of philosophical activity. Rather than an exercise in comparative philosophy in the traditional sense, he reflects on what makes comparative philosophy possible and intelligible."
André van der Braak, author of Nietzsche and Zen: Self-Overcoming Without a Self
The field of comparative or intercultural philosophy is growing steadily, and Jason M. Wirth's excellent work of scholarship is based on thorough research across several fields of philosophy and contains a host of original insights and good ideas."
Graham Parkes, author of Nietzsche and Asian Thought
