Editorial Reviews


Farr carefully re-evaluates Herbert Marcuse's critical analysis of modern life in the U.S.A. and develops a unique new effort to ground contemporary critical theory in new democratic visions drawn from important current debates ranging from radical feminism to Africana philosophy to cultural studies. (Timothy W. Luke, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University)

Arnold Farr's Critical Theory and Democratic Vision is one of the best books to come out on Marcuse and critical theory in years. Farr is the first to systematically develop Marcuse's thought in terms of democratic theory, liberation movements, and the challenges of race, class, gender, and sexual orientation. Using Marcuse to help develop a liberation philosophy for our times, Farr provides new perspectives on the relevance of Marcuse for contemporary issues and original perspectives of his own on current political and theoretical dynamics. (Douglas Kellner, UCLA; author of Media Culture and Media Spectacle and the Crisis of Democracy)

Arnold Farr calls for liberation philosophers to reconsider Herbert Marcuse’s critical theory. He rightly argues that John Rawls’ ‘justice as fairness’ and Jürgen Habermas’ discourse ethics could benefit from corrections coming from Marcuse’s philosophy. Farr’s treatment proves promising and will serve students and scholars unfamiliar with critical theory and Marcuse; yet, it shows the limits of Marcuse’s philosophy and of current debates in critical theory. (Marx & Philosophy Review of Books 2011-09-01)
