Press on Power and Powerlessness:

‘The Scope of Beeckman’s criticism covers much of contemporary thinking.’ – Vrij Nederland

‘Beeckman doesn’t write philosophy for her fellow academics, she presents urgent analyses that affect us all. A provocative history of ideas. The topics Beeckman discusses are of great relevance in these times.’ – Trouw
