    Goethe and False Subjectivity.Leo Lowenthal - 1984 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1984 (60):146-154.
    My original enthusiasm for the invitation of the city of Frankfurt to deliver the commemorative address on the occasion of the 150th anniversary of Goethe's death soon gave way to a state of depression. I thought of Walter Benjamin who, exactly fifty years ago, on the 100th anniversary of Goethe's death, wrote: “Every word about Goethe spared this year is a blessing.” I then came across Thomas Mann's caustic remark made on the 200th anniversary of Goethe's birth in 1949, in (...)

    Sociology of Literature in Retrospect.Leo Lowenthal & Ted R. Weeks - 1987 - Critical Inquiry 14 (1):1-15.
    I soon discovered that I was quite isolated in my attempts to pursue the sociology of literature. In any case, one searched almost in vain for allies if one wanted to approach a literary text from the perspective of a critical theory of society. To be sure, there were Franz Mehring’s articles which I read with interest and profit; but despite the admirable decency and the uncompromising political radicalism of the author, his writings hardly went beyond the limits of a (...)

    Recollections of Theodor W. Adorno.Leo Löwenthal - 1984 - Telos: Critical Theory of the Contemporary 1984 (61):158-165.
    I am in a difficult situation, being asked as a survivor to talk about people who are no longer with us, for survival always poses the problem of whether we have to deal with an event of a purely biological nature or one that, considered from an intellectual standpoint, is not merely arbitrary. Goethe frequently grappled with exactly this problem — if I may, for a moment, appeal to such a great standard. A second personal remark: when one has lived (...)

    The Dialectics of Liberation and Radical Activism: An Exchange of Letters Between Herbert Marcuse and Leo Löwenthal.Herbert Marcuse, Leo Löwenthal & Charles Reitz - 2013 - Radical Philosophy Review 16 (1):21-23.
    Warm regards are exchanged between old friends who are seriously bent on changing the world, not merely analyzing it. Mutual appreciation is evident, as is some tension. Herbert Marcuse’s militant critique of US war-making, waste-making, and poverty is taking Europe by storm. Leo Löwenthal tips his hat with subtle irony and humor to Marcuse’s 1967 triumphs as a public intellectual and political theorist. Activist students give Marcuse great credit because other Frankfurt theorists like Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno have remained (...)
