Violent critiques of liberalism: Georges Sorel, Carl Schmitt, Walter Benjamin is a paper by Benjamin Chwistek (University of York).

Blurb:

"Benjamin's research focuses on the way in which three thinkers - Georges Sorel, Carl Schmitt and Walter Benjamin - conceive of violence as a means of critique. The purpose of the thesis is to explore the ways in which a number of critical social and political theorists used violence and militarism as a means through which to define and test the limits of liberal democratic states and the nature of the individual therein."
