But this is just to say that Benhabib has allies in Mead and Dewey with regard to achieving a situtation where the ‘negation of the existent in the name of a future that bursts open the possibilities of the present’. She applies her admirably sharp and focused critical skills to unpacking the consequences of Habermas’ adaptation of Mead’s concept of the ‘generalized other’.
Nicholas added it Jan 25, That is, I think Adorno might have something a bit more to say in retort to her critique that he is still operating under crritique pretensions of ‘the philosophy of the subject’ especially in light of the dialectical unpacking of the art object and its potential in Criique Theory.

The criticisms she offers at each stage of the main theoretical appropriations of a general critical theory of society by Horkheimer, Adorno, Marcuse, Habermas are clear and thoughtful. Want to Read saving….
