A Critical Sense Summary

A Critical Sense: Interviews with Intellectuals by Edited by Peter Osborne

A Critical Sense brings together in a single volume the leading figures of contemporary radical theory. Moving freely between philosophy, politics and cultural studies, it offers a fascinating overview of the lines of thought of today's intellectual left.
Marxism, feminism, psychoanalysis and critical theory, literary studies, deconstruction, pragmatism, postcolonial and queer theory are discussed in a series of interviews from the journal Radical Philosophy. Those interviewed are:
Judith Butler
Cornelius Castoriadis
Drucilla Cornell
Axel Honneth
Istvan Meszaros
Edward Said
Renata Salecl
Gayatri Chakravorty Spivak
Cornel West
Slavoj Zizek
For those unfamiliar with the often daunting work of some of today's most important thinkers, ACritical Sense will offer an ideal introduction; for those already acquainted with the writings of the theorists interviewed here, the collection will throw new - and often surprising - light on familiar ground.

A Critical Sense Reviews

"Rigorous almost to the point of impertinence, these interviews hold fashionable thought to the highest standard. We watch as these thinkers earn their celebrity, and thus we can see that they are sexier as thinkers, finally, than they are as celebrities."
-Bruce Robbins, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, Rutgers University
