Critical Theory. In a few experimental European groups stemming from the radical tradition of dadaism and surrealism, but seeking to avoid the cooption to which those movements succumbed, came together to form the Situationist International. The name came from their aim of liberating everyday life through the creation of open-ended, participatory "situations" as opposed to fixed works of art — an aim which naturally ran up against the whole range of material and mental obstacles produced by the present social order. Seeking a more extreme social revolution than was dreamed of by most leftists, they developed an incisive critique of the global spectacle-commodity system and of its "Communist" and bureaucratic leftist pseudo-opposition, and their new methods of agitation helped trigger the May revolt in France. Since then — although the SI itself was dissolved in — situationist theories and tactics have continued to inspire radical currents all over the world. The Situationist International Anthology, generally recognized as the most comprehensive and accurately translated collection of situationist writings in English, presents a rich variety of articles from its French journal and in a variety of leaflets, pamphlets, filmscripts, leaflets, graffiti and internal documents, ranging from early experiments in "psychogeography" and cultural subversion to lucid analyses of the Watts riot, the Vietnam War, the Prague Spring, the Chinese Cultural Revolution and other crises and upheavals of the sixties.
