Nikolas Kompridis has recently argued that the future of critical theory depends upon a critical appropriation of Heidegger's concept of 'world disclosure', and hence on a transformation of critical theory into a form of 'world-disclosing critique' oriented towards the future. This article engages in a critical dialogue with Kompridis' account of world-disclosing critique, arguing that critical theory should embrace it as an innovative way of retrieving the forgotten tradition of aesthetic critique of modernity.
