Her suggestion to modify the theory of communicative action to integrate a concept of, and practices with regard to, a ‘concrete as opposed to a generalized other’ lead her in very interesting directions.

Critique, Norm, and Utopia: A Study of the Foundations of Critical Theory by Seyla Benhabib
Gina Eom rated it really liked it Feb 27, But benhabig is just to say that Benhabib has allies in Mead and Dewey with regard to achieving a situtation where the ‘negation of the existent in benhzbib name of a future that bursts open the possibilities of the present’.
No trivia or quizzes yet. Benhabib is well known for combining critical theory with feminist theory. The criticisms she offers at each stage of the main theoretical appropriations of a general critical theory of society by Horkheimer, Adorno, Marcuse, Habermas are clear and thoughtful.

Axel Honneth and Hans Joas in particular have shown this to be the case. Sep 17, Andrew rated it it was amazing.
That is, as we see in such works as Dewey’s The Public and Its Problems, ‘solidarity’, utolia, ‘need’ and the ‘concrete other’ are very much present alongside a demystifying critique of the colonization of the lifeworld by ‘instrumental reason’ in Weber’s sense. Benhabib is an exceptionally clear thinker, and here she takes us through the frustrating terrain of the normativity of critical social theory.

The positive recommendations she argues for in extending critical theory are well-founded. That is, I think Adorno might have something a bit more to say in retort to her critique that he is still operating under the pretensions of ‘the philosophy of the subject’ especially in light of the dialectical unpacking of the art object and its potential in Aesthetic Theory.
