How do contemporary critical thinkers find a way to work between the doubt that grounds their thinking and the knowing needed to ground emancipatory political struggles? In this overview of four contemporary thinkers' approaches to critique and climate change, communication schol...ar Murdoch Stephens discusses and analyses the fissures, elisions, and paradoxes that inform critical theory. The authors discussed--Timothy Morton, Peter Sloterdijk, Slavoj Zizek, and Bruno Latour--ground this original and unique approach to environmental communication, which finds that not only does critical theory offer important insights for those interested in climate change, but that critical theory also faces challenges to its constitution when faced with issues that are both urgent and yet require a scientific rigour that is not the specialty of critique. Written from the perspective of the interdisciplinary field of environmental communication, Critical Environmental Communication: How Might Critique Respond to the Urgency of Climate Change? also argues for re-orienting the field towards tensions and possibilities drawn from these four authors.
