    Of all the books in the Graphic Guide series, this is perhaps the worst not because of its subject matter which is immensely interesting , but because of its structure or lack thereof Normally these books assume you don t know anything about the subject except, perhaps, for a few ideas that have made their way into popular culture, which is the reasonable thing to do considering people most likely approach these books hoping for a gentle, bite sized introduction to the subject, however superficial it may be But this book is a major exception to the rule After the first 40 pages or so, it starts throwing jargon at you with no indication whatsoever that there s a glossary at the end of book, making reading this as an ebook extremely inconvenient Not that the glossary is that helpful in this instance, considering many definitions thereby found are nothing but exercises in writting at length without conveying any kind of meaningful message.If you re somewhat familiar with philosophy, critical theory and some of its terminology, you should be able to read this book just fine without resorting to using the glossary every couple of pages, or looking things up in the SEP IEP Otherwise, don t bother.

    I bought this cute little book on impulse while on vacation hoping it might be a fun way to fill in some gaps in my critical theory knowledge While I learned about the connections between theorists of the early 20th century and their takes on Marxism, the edition left much to be desired in terms of identity politics The book fails to even mention intersectionality or disability studies To be fair, the publisher has put out other editions that focus solely on feminism, cultural studies and also postmodernism I was mostly surprised that I was na ve enough to ignore the fact that the foundation of critical theory was built upon white male patriarchy This says a lot about my feminist centered education, of which I am proud however, it s Frustrating to me that the grand narrative of critical theory was presented as so monolithic in this small seemingly attractive book.

    Good gloss on the subject Necessarily an inch deep, but I found it to be a worthwhile introduction Its value lies in mapping out different thinkers, allowing one to both differentiate between their schools of thought and see how they relate to one another I read this as part of my self imposed purgatory for having slept through all of my college classes.

    I was one of those people who would be like, what the f are these people talking about whenever I d here critical theory arguments against things like math, logic, science, etc from folks at Cornell Thanks to this book, I see that the whole genre or approach is not a total sham, but rather some of its ideological aggressors read students with little understanding of other approaches This is a nice visually stimulating way to be introduced to this world, its giants, and the historical progression The only problem is, sometimes the brief synopses would be written in discipline specific jargon and warranted explanation for a layman But I guess that has been happening surprisingly infrequently given the ground covered We ll see if anything changes by the endOkay, now I m done, and nothing has changed I finished it like a month ago and kind of forget all the jargon I learned, but I guess the book will be handy if I ever I need any.

    This tiny rich book is a car or billow book Although it deals with so complicated ideas, it presents them in daily language and funny way In other words, you can have an overview of what people say in academia about these figures or theories It s a nice journey starts from Marx to post modernism theory even the fall of theory It s worth reading, sharing and discussing.

    This is an excellent guide to critical theory The graphics are most helpful They reflect the mood of the theories that are described There is a lot to absorb and this is just an introduction, but it is a good one These guides are useful even if they have an overload of information because they show the relationship between ideas and those who develop them As with all of these books, there is an excellent bibliography at the end of the book to further study of the ideas that have been presented There is action and reaction The visual style reflects the particular topic We see how all the isms interact and bounce off each other In a world as complex as the contemporary world, critical theory is necessary to examine the different aspects of the world Marx is seen as not only have an influence on economics and politics but on a way to look at how culture and society is organized outside of those spheres The issues of who has the power is significant as well as how new theories can challenge old spheres of power This was most stimulating and connected nicely with my previous knowledge of the various schools of thought that are postmodern and post structural, providing an historical context for analyzing all aspects of society and cultures.

    Critical Theory A ConglomerationI chose a three star rating for the following reasons First it is a very short introduction The index is not as helpful as it could be The for further reading section is not as extensive as most of the other Introducing books It is just not as helpful.What is helpful is a twenty page glossary It is an annotated, alphabetical listing of all the component philosophies of Critical Theory It is amazing as to what Critical Theory is composed of.I would not recommend this to a new reader of philosophy Being a conglomeration, it would be best to have read something about the various component philosophies that make up Critical Theory Otherwise, this is a good introduction.
