  • According to the translated blurb, the book is 'an extension and integration of her 2008 thesis. It combines the work of philosophical-historical research, which specifically engages the author (the thought of Herbert Marcuse), with a passion for the literature of American beat.'
  • 'Neri is currently working on analyzing the philosophical speculation of the young Marcuse and, specifically, his humanistic Marxism, through a critical examination of his texts from 1928 to 1941 in comparison with the works of thinkers who had the greatest impact on their formation, i.e. Marx, Hegel, Heidegger, Dilthey, Lukács and Korsch.'
