For Critical Times

No critic rating

Waiting for minimum critic reviews


"For Critical Times" draws out nine gems from our Critical Theory and Philosophy section, which has produced some of the most popular pieces LARB has published to date. Is it because these writers tease out and diagnose what ails society today? Or is it that keen minds love a good controversy, and our critical theorists aren't afraid to stir one up? We publish, you decide.
