As an avowed "theory head," Jordan Alexander Stein confronts a contradiction: that the abstract, and often frustrating rigors of theory also produced a sense of pride and identity for him and his friends: an idea of how to be and a way to live. Although Stein explains what theory is, this is not an introduction or a how-to. Organized around five ways that theory makes us feel-silly, stupid, sexy, seething and stuck-Stein travels back to the late nineties to tell a story of coming of age at a particular moment and to measure how that moment lives on now.
