Dialectic of enlightenment : philosophical fragments by Max Horkheimer( )

17 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 1,247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dialectic of Enlightenment is undoubtedly the most influential publication of the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory. Written during the Second World War and circulated privately, it appeared in a printed edition in Amsterdam in 1947. "What we had set out to do," the authors write in the Preface, "was nothing less than to explain why humanity, instead of entering a truly human state, is sinking into a new kind of barbarism." Yet the work goes far beyond a mere critice of contemporary events. Historically remote developments, indeed, the birth of Western history and of subjectivity itself out of the struggle against natural forces, as represented in myths, are connected in a wide arch to the most threatening experiences of the present. The book analyzes such phenomena as the detachment of science from practical life, formalized morality, the manipulative nature of entertainment culture, and a paranoid behavioral structure, expressed in aggressive anti-Semitism, that marks the limits of enlightenment. The authors perceive a common element in these phenomena, the tendency toward self-destruction of the guiding criteria inherent in enlightenment thought from the beginning. Using historical analyses to elucidate the present, they show, against the background of a prehistory of subjectivity, why the National Socialist terror was not an aberration of modern history but was rooted deeply in the fundamental characteristics of Western civilization. Adorno and Horkheimer see the self-destruction of Western reason as grounded in a historical and fateful dialectic between the domination of external nature and society. They trace enlightenment, which split these spheres apart, back to its mythical roots. Enlightenment and myth, therefore, are not irreconcilable opposites, but dialectically mediated qualities of both real and intellectual life. "Myth is already enlightenment, and enlightenment reverts to mythology." This paradox is the fundamental thesis of the book. This new translation, based on the text in the complete edition of the works of Max Horkheimer, contains textual variants, commentary upon them, and an editorial discussion of the position of this work in the development of Critical Theory. -- from back cover

7 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A record of their discussions over three weeks in the spring of 1956, recorded with a view to writing a contemporary version of The Communist Manifesto, this conversation ranges across its central themes--theory and practice, labor and leisure, domination and freedom--in a register found nowhere else in their work. Amid a careening flux of arguments, aphorisms and asides, in which the trenchant alternates with the reckless, positions are swapped and contradictions unheeded resulting in a thrilling example of philosophy in action and a compelling map of a possible passage to a new world"--Page 4 of cover

Die Bände 3 und 4 der : esammelten Schriften9 enthalten die zwischen 1931 und 1941 entstandenen und von Horkheimer selbst publizierten Aufsätze und Vorträge. In diesem Jahrzehnt - das sowohl den Erscheinungszeitraum der Zeitschrift für Sozialforschung als auch die ertragreichsten Jahre des Instituts für Sozialforschung umfaßt - war Horkheimers Schaffen von außerordentlicher Produktivität: In rascher Folge verfaßte er diejenigen Texte, die heute als Kernbestand der Kritischen Theorie gelten. Eine entscheidende Rolle spielte dabei der lebendige intellektuelle Zusammenhang, in den Horkheimer durch Zeitschrift und Institut eingebettet war. Die tägliche Arbeit mit Wissenschaftlern verschiedener Geistes- und Sozialwissenschaften ermöglichte ihm die ständige Diskussion und Erprobung seines Konzepts einer Theorie der Gesellschaft, die die Fachgrenzen überschreiten und sich an den realen Bedürfnissen der Menschen orientieren sollte. Der vorliegende Band 3 enthält u.a. Horkheimers Vortrag : ie gegenwärtige Lage der Sozialphilosophie. 9 der bereits das Programm der künftigen interdisziplinären Arbeit des Instituts enthält. In welch praxisnaher Weise dieser Anspruch dann eingelöst wurde, zeigt Horkheimers Beitrag zu den : tudien über Autorität und Familie9 Die gleichzeitige Entfaltung einer kritischen philosophischen Theorie dokumentieren vor allem die Aufsätze : aterialismus und Metaphysik9 und : aterialismus und Moral9 (Quelle:
