"Emilio de Ipola's Althusser: the Infinite Farewell is one of the most important books ever written on Althusser, not least because it offers a reading of Althusser from a perspective that is neither European nor North American. De Ipola's account brings structuralism to life and demonstrates the relevance of structuralism's questions and problems to our own time. De Ipola suggests that, seen from Latin America, reading and understanding Althusser is not a return to the past, but a confrontation with the most profound contradictions of the present."--Warren Montag, author of "Althusser and His Contemporaries: Philosophy's Perpetual War "

"Putting his unique theoretical acumen at the service of a striking methodological approach, Emilio de Ipola greatly enhances our understanding of the genealogy of structuralism. Along with his systematic expose of the two Althussers, the classical and the esoteric, de Ipola also offers a lyrical portrait of his own trajectory as an intellectual, his time in exile during Argentina's military dictatorship, and the intellectual scene in Paris. I cannot think of another slim volume that does such a good job outlining Althusser's work."--Bruno Bosteels, author of "Marx and Freud in Latin America: Politics, Psychoanalysis, and Religion in Times of Terror "
