Impure Reason: Dialectic of Enlightenment in Germany
Their essays, which represent a wide range of attitudes toward enlightenment, cover topics as varied as the debate on colonialism; the difficulties of diversity; the use and abuse of reading male sexuality in enlightenment self-critique; medicine, patriarchy, and heterosexuality; art and social discipline; disturbed mourning and the Enlightenment's flight from the body; and women possessed by the devil. Modern critics and defenders of enlightenment who are discussed in the essays include Horkheimer and Adorno (who are themselves subjected to a gender-based critique).
