The Dialectics of Seeing: Walter Benjamin and the Arcades Project
There's a lot I didn't understand, but what I did was fascinating. Buck-Morss does a great job of contextualizing and engaging with what is an unfinished project and by doing so points out both the failure and promise of Benjamin's work as a cultural theorist. I especially appreciated how she situated Benjamin in relation to his Jewish-ness, his Marxism, his German-ness, his connection to Paris, and his connection to the Frankfurt School.
