Editorial Reviews

James Geary
In his collection of aphorisms...Steven Carter writes that many of his sayings are “conversations” with aphorists and thinkers of the past. One aphorist Carter has done a lot of talking to is Ambrose Bierce; Carter penned The New Devil’s Dictionary, a kind of sequel to Bierce’s own The Devil’s Dictionary....he’s acquitted himself well in the few paraphrases of Benjamin Franklin he includes in the introduction.
Edwin J. Barton
To their credit, Steven Carter's books make honorable attempts to shore against our ruins a devotion to the powers of erudition, critical analysis, and judgment. In the words of Ezra Pound in Canto LXXXI, 'Here error is all in the not done,/all in the diffidence that faltered. . .' For Steven Carter, these are words to live by.
Amelia de Moura Tavares
Steven Carter's triumph is to have established a sort of universal ethic of 'how to be,' while promoting at the same time a holistic view of human beings in individual social, cultural, and psychological contexts.
Dorota Janowska
Fiction prevails over reality, image over object, machine over man. Such is the process of internalizing the Other that Steven Carter presents in his most disquieting, but nevertheless entertaining works.
Arthur J. Spring
Steven Carter has, I believe, made an important contribution to the study of metaphysics in our time. Such a voice ought to be heard.
