This essay brings the post-critique arguments of Eve Kosoksky Sedgwick and Bruno Latour into dialogue with Ricoeur's distinctive hermeneutical reading of Kant. My contention here is that critique, read through Ricoeur's Kantian-ontological lens, should not be viewed as a scourge on contemporary thinking, but as a helpful and philosophically German resource with which to counter the challenges of post-truth culture.
