    A New Direction? The Religious Critique of Modern Culture.David Gross - 2010 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 2010 (152):7-30.
    ExcerptI.During the 1960s, it seemed obvious to many on the American and European Left—including the founders of Telos in 1968—that a thoroughgoing cultural critique was badly needed, since the dominant forms of culture in the West appeared either to be promoting false consciousness or to have literally become false consciousness. More than this, by the twentieth century culture in general seemed to have reached the point where it was “mediating” practically everything. For many observers of the contemporary scene, it became (...)

    Culture and Negativity: Notes Toward a Theory of the Carnival.David Gross - 1978 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1978 (36):127-132.
    A lot can be learned about a culture by observing how it deals with the underside of life—with all those things it decides, for whatever reason, are unacceptable or beyod the pale. Every society, like every individual, holds up an image of what it thinks it is, but this is never the whole of what it actually its. Underneath the façade, in the interstices of social life and in the hidden spaces still considered taboo, one can often find the key (...)

    Left Melancholy.David Gross - 1985 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1985 (65):112-121.
    It is fascinating to see the extent to which European thought took a melancholic turn in the decades before World War I.Almost simultaneously, a number of related ideas became matters of major concern, particularly for middle-class intellectuals. Among these were the notion that life is by nature “incomplete,” that there is an irreconcilable opposition between desire and fulfillment, that the contemporary world is ugly and “impure,” and that existence itself is in a “fallen” state and apparently unredeemable. These ideas stimulated (...)

    Marxism and Modernism: An Historical Study of Lukács, Brecht, Benjamin and Adorno.David Gross - 1984 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1984 (59):177-186.
    There is no serious work of which I am aware that does not consider the artistic and literary doctrine of “socialist realism” an intellectual disaster. When Zhdanov announced this doctrine as official Soviet policy at the First Congress of Soviet Writers in 1934, his words put an end to a variety of artistic experiments which had taken place within the context of the Russian and European Left during the previous two decades. Suddenly socialist realism, or Zhdanovism, became the only “correct” (...)

    Symposium on Soviet Peasants.David Gross - 1986 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1986 (68):109-127.
    In 1981, an extraordinary work, written by Lev Timofeev, was smuggled to the West and immediately printed in Russian. It has now been translated into English for the first time under the title Soviet Peasants (or: The Peasants'; Art of Starving).' The book is a rare exercise in social anthropology in as much as Timofeev manages to bring together an expert's knowledge of Soviet agricultural policy with penetrating observations on the everyday life of peasants based on his own direct experience (...)
