9781781681725: The Philosophy Of Praxis: Marx, Lukács And The Frankfurt School

The early Marx called for the “realization of philosophy” through revolution. Revolution thus became a critical concept for Marxism, a view elaborated in the later praxis perspectives of Lukács and the Frankfurt School. These thinkers argue that fundamental philosophical problems are, in reality, social problems abstractly conceived.

Originally published as Lukács, Marx and the Sources of Critical Theory, The Philosophy of Praxis traces the evolution of this argument in the writings of Marx, Lukács, Adorno and Marcuse. This
reinterpretation of the philosophy of praxis shows its continuing relevance to contemporary discussions in Marxist political theory, continental philosophy and science and technology studies.

About the Author:

Andrew Feenberg is the author of Critical Theory of Technology; Alternative Modernity; Questioning Technology; Transforming Technology; Heidegger and Marcuse: The Catastrophe and
Redemption of History; and Between Reason and Experience: Essays in Technology and Modernity.

Review:

“Feenberg’s subtle and wide-ranging study of Lukács’ History and Class Consciousness teaches forward to Marcuse and the Frankfurt School and backwards into Marx’s 1844 manuscripts. The book offers a whole new framework in which to grasp the history of Marxist theory, at the same time restoring Marcuse’s centrality in it.” —Fredric Jameson

“A vigorous and thoughtful reassessment of both Lukács and the Western Marxist
tradition ... of great interest to anyone interested in critical theory or continental
philosophy.” —Robert Pippin
"A model of lucid and sophisticated intellectual history."—Martin Jay, University of California, Berkeley

"Feenberg achieves his goal of demonstrating the relevance of seemingly dusty and abstract philosophical conundrums not only to contemporary social theory but to politics as well."—American Political Science Review

"[Feenberg's] sensitive and intelligent treatment of a complex constellation of interrelated problems in Marxist studies should commend his book to a wide audience of interested scholars."—Man and World

"Poses the central problem of history in such a way that every reader can identify its elements.... The author knows the subject thoroughly, and illuminates many points in the texts of his main authors, as well as in those of such subsidiary figures as Marcuse and Habermas."—Review of Metaphysics

"A most fascinating and significant book."—Theory and Society
