    To those who are not philosophers traditionally educated in the Western canon: get ready to experience a tedious 150-page recap of Dante's The Divine Comedy, followed by a dense and dry 100-page lineage of ethics, formalism and metaphysics, capped off by only two pages making a case for why the two relate in any way at all.

    This book started out as a M.A. thesis, and it reads as bad as one. Harman may have come up with an interesting philosophy, this project becomes mired in the muck of youthful bad writing from the beginning. Could not finish, only got to page 159, of 249
