I think that perhaps her discussion of Adorno is a bit quick with regard to the turn to Mimesis and aesthetics as the location of emanicpation.

Bryan added it May 28, And while this is welcome and persuasive as a critique of Habermas, I think scholarship regarding Mead and Dewey in the 26 years since Benhabib’s book shows that the concrete other was very much a part of their own critical theories of democracy.
