"It was only a matter of time before Marcuse, whose star had waned so precipitously in the years after his death in 1979, would find a place in the new constellation of the 1990s. These lively and engaging essays go a long way towards demonstrating that he still has much to contribute to fin-de-siecle radical thought and practice."--Martin Jay, author of Fin-de Siecle Socialism and Marxism and Totality: The Adventures of a Concept from Lukacs to Habermas
"Is Marcuse also a thinker for the 1990s? This timely and exciting volume, written in a lively and truly engaging style, makes a strong case for the continued importance of Marcuse's thought. These essays are written in admiration and respect; but they are not mere celebrations. Rather, they honor Marcuse with thought-provoking questions and critiques that explore ways to carry his work forward. Used together with Marcuse's own writings, this book would make an excellent classroom text."--David Michael Levin, author of The Listening Self: Personal Growth, Social Change, and the Closure of MetaphysicsAbout the Author:
