"Nature as Event is a remarkable rendering of Whitehead's most difficult points of philosophy. With his slow, light, and extremely clever touch, Didier Debaise has a unique ability to make speculative philosophy understandable to everybody, artists as wells as social scientists and humanists. One will never find another book that makes the notion of the 'eternal object' commonsensical. A great read." — Bruno Latour, author of An Inquiry into Modes of Existence: An Anthropology of the Moderns
“This remarkable book may serve as an introduction to Whitehead's thought due to its brevity, beautiful clarity, and quality of its argumentation. But it is much more than that: it is a very original and thought-provoking contribution to philosophy and humanities that is motivated by the concerns of our time. Didier Debaise renders the thorniest questions intelligible and characterizes concepts in such a way that readers feel each concept intensifying an aspect of their experience. A deeply rewarding book.” — Isabelle Stengers, author of In Catastrophic Times: Resisting the Coming Barbarism
