On Max Horkheimer:New Perspectives
"An anthology of considerable quality.... On Max Horkheimer is an anthology of more than historical interest. Horkheimer was a thinker who asked, even when he failed adequately to answer, questions concerning the intellectual credentials and moral status of a social theory that aspires to be critical as well as interpretive. These are questions that have lost none of their relevance.... Horkheimer remains a figure to be reckoned with."
-- David Levy, "Times Higher Education Supplement" Max Horkheimer (1895-1973), one of the founders of critical theory and a sometime colleague of Herbert Marcuse, Theodor Adorno, and Walter Benjamin, has become a subject of renewed attention and appreciation in Germany in the last decade. This collection of essays by German and American scholars will help familiarize English-speaking readers with the most important results of this recent work and, in conjunction with a companion volume of Horkheimer's essays, Between Philosophy and Social Science, should provide a much fuller and deeper picture of his role in the history of modern social theory.
