Reconciliation and Reification

Freedom's Semblance and Actuality from Hegel to Contemporary Critical Theory

Todd Hedrick

  • Provides a systematic overview of contemporary critical theory from a new perspective, i.e., a new way of looking at the issue of how a critical perspective on society ought to be "grounded"
  • Weaves together the legal-theoretic and psychoanalytic dimensions of critical social theory
  • Speaks to ongoing issues of alienation and authoritarian backlash in Western societies that are not succeeding in pacing social change in a democratically controlled and transparent manner
