Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Most of this material is reprinted from the Fall-Winter 1983-84 issue of the Philosophical forum, vol. XV, nos. 1-2. Walter Benjamin (1892-1940) was a philosopher, aesthetic theorist, and social critic. While famed as a critic, his philosophy has received little attention. These essays attempt to remedy that shortcoming by introducing the central philosophical features of Benjamin's thought. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
