    Critical Theory (Very Short Introduction) 2E*

    Bronner, Stephen Eric
    Kiadó: Oxford University Press
    Critical Theory emerged in the 1920s from the work of the Frankfurt School, the circle of German-Jewish academics who sought to diagnose-and, if at all possible, cure-the ills of society, particularly fascism and capitalism. In this book, Stephen EricBronner provides sketches of leading representatives of the critical tradition (such as George Lukács and Ernst Bloch, Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin, Herbert Marcuse and Jurgen Habermas) as well as many of its seminal texts and empiricalinvestigations. This Very Short Introduction sheds light on the cluster of concepts and themes that set critical theory apart from its more traditional philosophical competitors. Bronner explains and discusses concepts such as method and agency,alienation and reification, the culture industry and repressive tolerance, non-identity and utopia. He argues for the introduction of new categories and perspectives for illuminating the obstacles to progressive change and focusing upon hiddentransformative possibilities. Only a critique of critical theory can render it salient for a new age. That is precisely what this very short introduction provides.

    Beyond Order (12 More Rules For Life)

    Peterson, Jordan B.
    Kiadó: Penguin Books Ltd
    The companion volume to 12 Rules for Life offers further guidance on the perilous path of modern life.In 12 Rules for Life, clinical psychologist and celebrated professor at Harvard and the University of Toronto Dr. Jordan B. Peterson helped millions of readers impose order on the chaos of their lives. Now, in this bold sequel, Peterson delivers twelvemore lifesaving principles for resisting the exhausting toll that our desire to order the world inevitably takes.In a time when the human will increasingly imposes itself over every sphere of life-from our social structures to our emotional states-Peterson warns that too much security is dangerous. What's more, he offers strategies for overcoming the cultural,scientific, and psychological forces causing us to tend toward tyranny, and teaches us how to rely instead on our instinct to find meaning and purpose, even-and especially-when we find ourselves powerless.While chaos, in excess, threatens us with instability and anxiety, unchecked order can petrify us into submission. Beyond Order provides a call to balance these two fundamental principles of reality itself, and guides us along the straight and narrowpath that divides them.
