The first draft of my book manuscript Misrecognition, Mimetic Rivalry, and One-Dimensionality: Toward a Critical Theory of Human Conflict and Social Pathology will be completed by early summer 2012. I have put aside a few of the projects that I've been working on so that I may write Herbert Marcuse's intellectual biography. Due to the recent surge of interest in Marcuse I have prioritized the biography.
