Futures of Critical Theory: Dreams of Differenceby Michael A. Peters (Editor), Mark Olssen (Editor), Colin Lankshear (Editor), Bill Ashcroft (Contribution by), Gert JJ Biesta (Contribution by)
Written by internationally acclaimed scholars on futures of critical theory, this book attempts to renew and reinvigorate critical theory by extending its range and its intellectual trajectories through strategies of inclusiveness that respect and build on parallel traditions. The authors reinterpret the work of Nietzsche, Wittgenstein, and Heidegger in relation to central figures (Kant, Marcuse, Foucault) and themes of critical theorythe critique of modernity, theory of the self, and the question concerning technology. Key chapters address the critical significance of the work of the French theorists Levinas, Deleuze, Derrida, Lyotard, Irigaray, and Bourdieu and while other chapters focus on thinkers as diverse as Zizek, Giddens, Said, and Guattari, and deal with contemporary topics such as cyberfeminism and antiglobalization.
