Reviews

In a text that is as much an art of address as it is about address, Monique Roelofs brilliantly intertwines the aesthetic, social identities, ways of life, as well as the pleasures and threats of art objects, with a theoretically robust analysis of address that yields a critical political aesthetics that allows for the possibility of perceiving new worlds. -- Mariana Ortega There is at present no systematic work that investigates the question of address as a concept in the global way Monique Roelofs pursues in this patient, lucid, and orderly book. Arts of Address demonstrates that explicit theorizations of address in the western philosophical tradition have historically been understated, partial, localized, or overlooked. Roelofs's book seeks to correct these oversights and gaps in the critical canon's conceptualization of address with clarity and comprehensiveness. -- Ellen Rooney, Royce Family Professor of Teaching Excellence, Brown University
