Feminist Theory and the Frankfurt School
Journal Issue Pages: 164 Volume 17, Number 1 Published: 2006 An issue of differences
Special Issue Editor: Wendy Brown
This special issue of differences explores what light Frankfurt School critical theory can shed on contemporary problematics in feminist theory. In contrast to the relatively extensive employment of the work of Jürgen Habermas for this purpose, this special issue focuses on other major thinkers of the Frankfurt School, especially Horkheimer, Adorno, and Benjamin.
