While these three philosophers can clearly generate incisive dialogue, I worry that they spent to much time deconstructing one another's rhetoric/polemics and not enough time deconstructing theoretical concepts.

While this book speaks to the 2011 Occupy Movement, it anticipates the 2012 Republican debates, e.g., "We all agree that the current system is bad, but only one of us can be right about it."
