Rethinking rethinking.

Is it just me or is it the case that the people who title their projects ‘rethinking:’ (a) never got it right in the first place and (b) are bound to get it wrong when re-thinking it.

Take the current Frankfurt scholars and reification. Not only do they get the original concept wrong, their attempt to rethink it by adding a normative dimension and turning it into pop psychology sucks.
