We are very glad to give notice of the release of the volume Critique in German Philosophy. From Kant to Critical Theory, edited by María del Rosario Acosta López and J. Colin McQuillan (SUNY Press, 2020).
From the publisher’s website:
Critique has been a central theme in the German philosophical tradition since the eighteenth century. The main goal of this book is to provide a history of this concept from its Kantian inception to contemporary critical theory. Focusing on both canonical and previously overlooked texts and thinkers, the contributors bring to light alternative conceptions of critique within nineteenth- and twentieth-century German philosophy, which have profound implications for contemporary philosophy. By offering a critical revision of the history of modern European philosophy, this book raises new questions about what it means for philosophy to be “critical” today.
