Political theory, critical theory, and the place of the Frankfurt school
Graduate studies at Western
Critical Horizons 1 (2):271-280 (2000)
|Abstract||This paper explores the paradox of the Frankfurt School's Critical Theory where the notion of "critical theory" became identified with aesthetics and asks whether the disappearance of the political dimension of critical theory was necessary.This disappearance of the political also presents some uncomfortable affinities between it and postmodernism. But in the more sober world after 1989, post-communism poses more relevant questions than post-modernism for an assessment of the history of the Frankfurt School.The political project of the old Frankfurt School has to be revivified - or at least given a decent burial.|
