Frankfurt School: Critical Theory

The circle of German-Jewish intellectuals that formed around MAX HORKHEIMER, the director of the Frankfurt "Institute for Social Research", became famous as the "Frankfurt School". The school's line of thought, which was largely inspired by FREUD and MARX and in which different fields of research interact, is called "critical theory" - homework help at Do My Homework Club . It undertakes a comprehensive, critical social analysis that illuminates the connection between modern subjectivity (subjective reason) and capitalist social order.

One of the main motifs of her research concerns the question of why enlightened thinking - https://domyhomework.club/social-studies-homework/ , which promised people liberation from the forces of nature and superstition through their own reason, could turn into the barbarism of National Socialism.

From the early 1930s onwards, representatives of various fields of research worked at the "Institute for Social Research", such as

  • psychoanalysis (ERICH FROMM),
  • philosophy (MAX HORKHEIMER, HERBERT MARCUSE, later also THEODOR W. ADORNO),
  • cultural theory (WALTER BENJAMIN),
  • sociology (LEO LÖWENTHAL)

together. From this developed - first in Frankfurt, then during the Nazi period in American exile - an interdisciplinary research approach for a comprehensive critique of society. Its designation as "critical theory" goes back to a programmatic essay - law homework help - that Horkheimer published in 1937 in the "Zeitschrift fur Sozialforschung" (ZfS).
