"Becoming Human is a remarkable book, well nigh unclassifiable. This is an exemplary work in more than one sense: it opens up a new approach to the medieval period by way of its three examples; and it does so in a way that is a model of scholarship, keeping its balance between the responsible and the adventurous. While the book illuminates certain aspects of the medieval period, it does so in a way that also illuminates our own." Peter Schwenger, author of At the Borders of Sleep: On Liminal Literature
"This work makes one of the most important contributions that can currently be made to emerging work in post-continental philosophy. It offers fresh insights and perspectives to speculative realist thought that will actually help that thought to continue its important mission of disrupting settled overly human-centric ontologies, while also valuably correcting its historical blind-spots." Eileen A. Joy, coeditor of Speculative Medievalisms
"No work of scholarship has so engrossed me in a long while.
Becoming Human is one of the best books published in medieval studies in the past decade and considering how many excellent works have appeared over that time, that, I think, is very high praise." J J Cohen, author of Stories of Stone: An Ecology of the Inhuman in his blog “In the Middle”
