Critical Theory and Philosophy illuminates one of the most complex and influential philosophical movements of this century. After tracking Critical Theory to its source in the works of Kant, Hegel, Marx, and Weber, David Ingram examines the four major figures of the Frankfurt School: Theodor Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse, and Jurgen Habermas. The logical structure of this text guides both novice and veteran students through specific social and political concerns toward a gradual understanding of the philosophy of critical evaluation.

Includes chapters on:

  • The Philosophical Roots of Critical Theory
  • Freud and the Problem of Ideology
  • Weber and the Dialectic of Enlightenment
  • Marcuse and the New Politics of Liberation
  • Horkheimer and Habermas on Critical Methodology
  • Contemporary Trends in Social Philosophy
