Book Description

The Idea of Critique addresses the shortcomings of existing literature by developing an original, detailed and comprehensive interpretation of Bhaskar’s account of explanatory critique, exhibiting the dialectical unity of his thought at a deep level, and situating and defending his account as a powerful new paradigm within the tradition of Critical Theory.

This book will be of interest both to students and experts interested in critical realism, and more generally to the wider audience of philosophers and social scientists with an interest in social criticism.
