Devin Shaw’s Egalitarian Moments

Is reviewed at Marx and Philosophy by William Hebblewhite. The review is at times critical (there is a reference, but no follow-up made, to interpretive differences about Rancière), but having read the book earlier this year, I found the point, too, that the book was more to find a counter-tradition of egalitarianism from Descartes onward behind Rancière’s project. I, too, found the first half of the book the most invigorating (mostly because I know the debates and such around Rancière and his aesthetics, which I’m generally critical of, so I gained some nice surprises from the first half). In any event, it’s a book well worth your time.
