In its essence, critical theory is western Marxist thought with the emphasis moved from the liberation of the working class to broader issues of individual agency. Critical theory emerged in the 1920s from the work of the Frankfurt School, which sought to diagnose and cure the ills of society. In the second edition of this Very Short Introduction, Bronner provides sketches of major critical thinkers such as Ernst Bloch, Theodor Adorno, and Jurgen Habermas, as well as
many of the seminal texts and empirical investigations of critical theory.

Recensioner i media

Jeffrey T. Nealon, professor of English, Penn State University; co-editor of Rethinking the Frankfurt School This is the only book of its kind: it's a readable, yet expertly crafted, tour through the Frankfurt School, along with a forceful account of why the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory still matters a decade into the new millennium. I can't recommend it highly enough.

Joan Braune, Philosophy in Review
The book's forthright critique and call to transformation are a breath of
fresh air.
