    • I was inspired by this book. Essentially Kompridis is looking for a way we can recapture a sense of creativity and innovation in critical theory after Adorno and Horkheimer ended in despair and Habermas responded by limiting it to procedural ethics. He does this by reclaiming from Heideggerian thought "disclosure" as a concept, which he carefully defends from the critics who suggest such a concept is irrational, elitist or even possibly tyrannical. As "disclosure" we can now see politics as some [...]


    • An amazing book. Kompridis asks more out of our critical awareness than most thinkers, yet he does so conscientiously - almost optimistically. Almost. His creativity in conceptualizing the locations and demands of critical theory is something to behold.
