"Redescubierto y rehabilitado en los últimos años, el estudio póstumo de Kracauer sobre la historia constituye, junto con la Teoría del cine, una de las producciones tardías más importantes del pensador alemán, a la vez que uno de los aportes fundamentales a la filosofía y la historiografía contemporáneas. Verdadero "intelectual nómada", Kracauer propone aquí un recorrido a través de las principales corrientes históricas modernas, destacando sus respectivos méritos y limitaciones, y desarrollando un exhaustivo ataque contra cualquier visión fatalista de la historia humana. Por esta obra, en la que se busca construir "una filosofía de la situación provisoria en la que nos encontramos", desfila una amplia galería de pensadores y escritores, exponiendo facetas esenciales y a menudo insospechadas: Hegel, Marx, Ranke, Burckhardt, Croce, Löwith, Benjamin, Adorno, entre otros."--Contratapa
The mass ornament : Weimar essays by Siegfried Kracauer( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siegfried Kracauer was one of the twentieth century's most brilliant cultural critics, a daring and prolific scholar, and an incisive theorist of film. In this volume his finest writings on modern society make their long-awaited appearance in English. This book is a celebration of the masses--their tastes, amusements, and everyday lives. Taking up themes of modernity, such as isolation and alienation, urban culture, and the relation between the group and the individual, Kracauer explores a kaleidoscope of topics: shopping arcades, the cinema, bestsellers and their readers, photography, dance, hotel lobbies, Kafka, the Bible, and boredom. For Kracauer, the most revelatory facets of modern life in the West lie on the surface, in the ephemeral and the marginal. Of special fascination to him is the United States, where he eventually settled after fleeing Germany and whose culture he sees as defined almost exclusively by "the ostentatious display of surface." With these essays, written in the 1920s and early 1930s and edited by the author in 1963, Kracauer was the first to demonstrate that studying the everyday world of the masses can bring great rewards. The Mass Ornament today remains a refreshing tribute to popular culture, and its impressively interdisciplinary essays continue to shed light not only on Kracauer's later work but also on the ideas of the Frankfurt School, the genealogy of film theory and cultural studies, Weimar cultural politics, and, not least, the exigencies of intellectual exile. In his introduction, Thomas Levin situates Kracauer in a turbulent age, illuminates the forces that influenced him--including his friendships with Walter Benjamin, Theodor Adorno, and other Weimar intellectuals--and provides the context necessary for understanding his ideas. Until now, Kracauer has been known primarily for his writings on the cinema. This volume brings us the full scope of his gifts as one of the most wide-ranging and penetrating interpreters of modern life. --Publisher description

18 editions published between 1933 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ein "Drückeberger" als Held: Ginster ist 25, als der Erste Weltkrieg ausbricht, ein begabter Frankfurter Architekt. Der patriotischen Begeisterung seiner Zeitgenossen steht er skeptisch gegenüber, und so verwendet er einige Mühe darauf, sich immer wieder vom Kriegsdienst zurückstellen zu lassen - das Vaterland braucht seine Architekten schließlich nicht an der Front, sondern zu Hause, wo etwa Granatfabriken und Ehrenfriedhöfe für die gefallenen Soldaten zu planen sind. Doch dann ereilt auch Ginster der Gestellungsbefehl. Weit weg von den Schlachtfeldern lernt er, mit militärischer Präzision ein Bett zu bauen, zu schießen und "gegen die Feinde Kartoffeln zu schälen". Und es festigt sich in ihm die Überzeugung, dass all diese Übungen nicht dem Krieg dienen, sondern der ganze Krieg ein Vorwand für die Übungen ist. Im Frankfurt des Ersten Weltkriegs spielt dieser Roman, der den literarischen Ruhm seines Autors begründete. Es ist das faszinierende Porträt eines Mannes, dessen Haltung zur Welt und ihren Widersprüchen oft mit Chaplin und Keaton verglichen worden ist

Siegfried Kracauer's American writings : essays on film and popular culture by Siegfried Kracauer( Book )

5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 165 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Siegfried Kracauer (1889-1966), friend and colleague of Walter Benjamin and Theodor Adorno, was one of the most influential film critics of the mid-twentieth century. In this book, Johannes von Moltke and Kristy Rawson have, for the first time assembled essays in cultural criticism, film, literature, and media theory that Kracauer wrote during the quarter century he spent in America after fleeing Nazi-occupied Europe. In the decades following his arrival in the United States, Kracauer commented on developments in American and European cinema, wrote on film noir and neorealism, examined unsettling political trends in mainstream cinema, and reviewed the contemporary experiments of avant-garde filmmakers. As a cultural critic, he also ranged far beyond cinema, intervening in debates regarding Jewish culture, unraveling national and racial stereotypes, and reflecting on the state of arts and humanities in the 1950s. These essays, together with the editors' introductions and an afterward by Martin Jay offer illuminating insights into the films and culture of the postwar years and provide a unique perspective on this eminent émigré intellectual
