Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415105080, Paperback)Why does the ghost of Kant continue to haunt contemporary critical theory? Kant, Critique and Politics examines the influence of Kantian critique on the work of such major and diverse theorists as Habermas, Arendt, Foucault and Lyotard. It offers an entirely new reading of Kant, challenging the orthodox distinctions between modernist and postmodernist theorizing, by illuminating how Kant's influence continues to structure critical debate.
This is the first book to offer both a systematic reading of Kant and to contextualise his work in the light of the continental tradition. It will be central to political philosophers and students of international relations and feminist theory.

Kimberley Hutchings re-evaluates Kant's work in terms of its significance for the writings of Habermas, Arendt, Lyotard and Foucault. This, however, is not an exercise in the history of ideas; through her clear presentation of Kant's critical philosophy, Hutchings reveals that the critique is in fact a complex and highly ambiguous political practice. Hutching's reading traces a common Kantian heritage in theories thought to represent the different poles of the modernist postmodernist debate and sheds new light on the Kantian influence in political philosophy, international relations theory and feminist theory.
