In Peter Gordon, Espen Hammer & Axel Honneth (eds.), The Routledge Companion to the Frankfurt School. Routledge (2018)

This Chapter presents an analysis of the idea of social pathology and its role in Frankfurt School Critical Theory. I suggest that this idea can set Critical Theory apart from mainstream liberal approaches, but also note the challenges involved in doing so, urging a return to its original, interdisciplinary program.
