About this title


Traces the life of the influential Marxist philosopher, and discusses the formation of his political beliefs

From Library Journal:

Throughout most of his long life (1885-1971), Lukacs ardently supported Soviet Communism, and he is generally ranked as the leading 20th-century Marxist intellectual. As Kadarkay makes clear in this comprehensive biography, Lukacs's revolutionary career deviated sharply from his interests as a student. Before World War I, he acquired a reputation as a prodigy in literature and philosophy. Max Weber thought highly of him. His utopian fascination found its definitive outlet with the onset of Bolshevism. Embracing Leninism, he presented his vision of the vanguard party in History and Class-Consciousness (1923). Kadarkay traces in detail Lukacs's political activities and his work as a literary scholar, emphasizing his personal side more than his ideas. To Kadarkay, Lukacs's complex psychology is fascinating. Those not in the grip of Lukacs's personality may find the book overly detailed. The product of much labor and devotion, it will probably become the standard biography.
