The essay focuses on Social Text's lack of engagement with aesthetics as a point of departure to think about art and politics in the wake of the culture wars, the intensification of globalization, and the aftermath of 9/11. The essay concludes with a forceful argument for a (re)turn to the aesthetic both within the journal and in cultural discourse in general.
