Neoliberalism and Normative Ambivalence

Third-Generation Critical Theory and the Fetish of Intersubjectivity

(p.63) 2 Neoliberalism and Normative Ambivalence
A Political Economy of the Senses

Anita Chari

Columbia University Press

This chapter deepens the account of neoliberal symptoms in contemporary theory through a critique of Third Generation Critical Theory, and particularly the work of Axel Honneth. The chapter argues that critical theory's reliance on norms that are insulated from capital results in an approach that recapitulates rather than critiques neoliberal depoliticization.

Keywords:   Axel Honneth, Intersubjectivity, Nancy Fraser, neoliberal resignification, reification
