Read full description of the books Los Angeles Review of Books - Digital Editions: For Critical Times:
"For Critical Times" draws out nine gems from our Critical Theory and Philosophy section, which has produced some of the most popular pieces LARB has published to date. Is it because these writers tease out and diagnose what ails society today? Or is it that keen minds love a good controversy, and our critical theorists aren't afraid to stir one up? We publish, you decide.
Arne De Boever: "Introduction"
Bruce Robbins: "Europe on the Brink: Habermas and the Currency Crisis"
Olivia Harrison: "Judith Butler and the Cause of the Other"
Maggie Nelson: "Finishing Touches: Eve Kosofsky Sedgewick's The Weather in Proust"
Adam Kotsko: "How to Read Žižek"
Brian Hanrahan: "For Future Friends of Walter Benjamin"
Dora Zhang: "The Sideways Gaze: Roland Barthes's Travels in China"
Rebecca Ariel Porte: "The Zany, the Cute, and the Interesting: Sianne Ngai's Our Aesthetic Categories"
Peggy Kamuf: Life in Storage: "Of Capitalism and A&E's Storage Wars"
