Critical Theory and Feeling

The Affective Politics of the Early Frankfurt School

Simon Mussell

Published by Manchester University Press

This book examines the vital role of affect and feeling within the work of the early Frankfurt School. The author investigates a range of concepts - including melancholia, hope, (un)happiness, objects, and mimesis - and argues that a contemporary reading of critical theory needs to accommodate an adequate understanding of affect.
