``A well-informed and perceptive study. ... It is to Martin's credit that he starts our imagination working. ''- University of Toronto Quarterly, Vol. XLVII No. 4, Summer 1978
``The attempt by Williams to capture the American scene in order to make more plausible an extension of Heidegger's ontology is indeed a boldly conceived enterprise, one requiring a treatment at once unified and cohesive and which at first sight would seem so unusual as to be almost impossible to sustain. Nevertheless, it is a project which has been carried through with sincerity and thoroughness. ''- A.W.J. Harper, Dialogue, Vol. XXII No. 3, September 1983
``A competent and useful contribution to reflections on a rich topic. ''- Religious Studies Review, Vol. 4, No. 1, January 1978
