    I bought this cute little book on impulse while on vacation hoping it might be a fun way to fill in some gaps in my critical theory knowledge While I learnedabout the connections between theorists of the early 20th century and their takes on Marxism, the edition left much to be desired in terms of identity politics The book fails to even mention intersectionality or disability studies To be fair, the publisher has put out other editions that focus solely on feminism, cultural studies an I bought this cute little book on impulse while on vacation hoping it might be a fun way to fill in some gaps in my critical theory knowledge While I learnedabout the connections between theorists of the early 20th century and their takes on Marxism, the edition left much to be desired in terms of identity politics The book fails to even mention intersectionality or disability studies To be fair, the publisher has put out other editions that focus solely on feminism, cultural studies an...

    I was one of those people who would be like, what the f are these people talking about whenever I d here critical theory arguments against things like math, logic, science, etc from folks at Cornell Thanks to this book, I see that the whole genre or approach is not a total sham, but rather some of its ideological aggressors read students with little understanding of other approaches This is a nice visually stimulating way to be introduced to this world, its giants, and the historical I was one of those people who woul...
