The Dialectical Imagination (Weimar & Now) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Herbert Marcuse, Erich Fromm, Max Horkheimer, Franz Neumann, Theodor Adorno, Leo Lowenthal—the impact of the Frankfurt School on the sociological, political, and cultural thought of the twentieth century has been profound. The Dialectical Imagination is a major history of this monumental cultural and intellectual enterprise during its early years in Germany and in the United States. Martin Jay has provided a substantial new preface for this edition, in which he reflects on the continuing relevance of the work of the Frankfurt School.

Synopsis:

A history of the Frankfurt School and its impact during its early years in Germany and the United States. This edition includes a new preface which reflects on the continuing relevance of the work of the Frankfurt School.

Synopsis:

"An important book, full of new material and measured in its judgments, which will do a great deal, not only to make possible the assimilation of the work of the Frankfurt School by the intellectual public but also to clarify the issues to which their work gives rise."—Fredric Jameson, author of Marxism and Form

"I read your book again, and I was even more impressed than the first time. An amazing example of scholarship without dullness, of objectivity and love for the subject matter!"—Herbert Marcuse

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [355]-370) and index.
