Summary
"Critique of Violence is an investigation of the heated controversy between poststructuralism and critical theory. Leading theorist Beatrice Hanssen uses Walter Benjamin's essay "Critique of Violence" as a guide to analyze the contentious debate, shifting the emphasis from struggle to dialogue between the two parties. Regarding the questions of critique and violence to be the major meeting points between both traditions, Hanssen positions herself between the two in an effort to investigate what critical theory and poststructuralism have to offer each other. In the course of doing so, she assembles imaginative new reading of Benjamin, Arendt, Fanon, and Foucault, and incisively explores the politics of recognition, the violence of language, and the future of feminist theory." "This book will be essential reading for all students of continental philosophy, political theory, social studies, and comparative literature."--BOOK JACKET
