The poverty of (critical) theory: a review

Longina Strumska-Cylwik


The subject of this review is the paper by Bert Olivier titled “The poverty of (critical) theory”, a work to which one cannot remain indifferent. It provokes one into discussion, touches one’s conscience, fills one with bitter reflection on the condition of critical theory and the condition of humanity and the modern world, and at the same time it induces fear for their future fate.

Abstract in PolishPrzedmiotem niniejszej recenzji jest praca Berta Oliviera zatytułowana: „The poverty of (critical) theory”, obok której nie sposób przejść obojętnie. Prowokuje ona bowiem do dyskusji, porusza sumienia, przepełnia gorzką refleksją nad kondycją teorii krytycznej oraz kondycją człowieka i współczesnego świata, a zarazem wyzwala lęk o ich przyszłe losy.
