Reviews

'De Boer and Sonderegger have compiled an invaluable historical inventory of conceptions of critique from Spinoza to Rancière. Beginning with a riveting essay by Judith Butler, who recalls that critique is the condition for dissent, this volume provides Kant, Marx, Nietzsche, Freud, Adorno, Foucault, among others, with fresh and challenging philosophical profiles. All students of critique will want this volume on their bookshelf.' - Jay Bernstein, New School for Social Research, New York, USA

'This is a uniquely rich and diverse volume which offers both historical reconstructions of (mostly) post-Kantian conceptions of critique and evaluative discussions of the nature and future of critique as a method. I very much recommend this book to anyone interested in questions of normativity and justification.' - Béatrice Han-Pile, University of Essex, UK
