Critique of Cynical Reason (Theory and History of Literature Series)by Peter Sloterdijk, Michael Eldred, Andreas Huyssen
Pub. Date: 02/28/1988
Publisher: University of Minnesota Press
Upon its publication in Germany in 1983, this author's book stirred both critical acclaim and consternation, attracting a wide readership. He finds cynicism the dominant mode in contemporary culture, in personal and institutional settings; his book is both a history of the impulse and an investigation of its role today, among those whose earlier hopes for social change have crumbled and faded away.
