The ends of radical critique? Crisis, capitalism, emancipation: a conversation

Amy Allen, Paul Apostolidis, Albena Azmanova, Lea Ypi

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In a discussion of Albena Azmanova’s book Capitalism on Edge (Columbia University Press, 2020), Amy Allen, Paul Apostolidis, Lea Ypi and Albena Azmanova debate key issues critical social theory confronts today. How should critical theorists re-engage with the critique of capitalism without entrapment in old ideological certainties? They revisit the classical debates about transformative agency, direction and methods of change, and the place of normative ideals and of moral theory in the critique of capitalism in light of the current historical juncture.
