Developing a concept briefly introduced in i Counterrevolution and Revolt i Marcuse here addresses the shortcomings of Marxist aesthetic theory and explores a dialectical aesthetic in which art functions as the conscience of society Marcuse argues that art is the only form or expression that can take up where religion and philosophy fail and contends that aesthetics offers the last refuge for two dimensional criticism in a one dimensional society, In this book Herbert Marcuse makes clear that capitalism is now reorganizing itself to meet the threat of a revolution that if realized would be the most radical of revolutions the first truly world historical revolution Capitalism s counterrevolution however is largely preventive and in the Western world altogether preventive Yet capitalism is producing its own grave diggers and Marcuse suggests that their faces may be very different from those of the wretched of the earth br br The future revolution will be characterized by its enlarged scope for not only the economic and political structure not only class relatoins but also humanity s relation to nature both human and external nature tend toward radical transformation For the author the liberation of nature is the connecting thread between the economic political and the cultural revolution between changing the world and personal emancipation, Herbert Marcuse s Negations is both a radical critique of capitalist modernity and a model of materialist dialectical thinking In a series of essays originally written in the period stretching from the s to s Marcuse takes up the presupposed categories that have and continue to ground thought and action in our administered society liberalism industrialism individualism hedonism aggression This book is both a testament to a great thinker and a still vital strand of thought in the comprehension and critique of the modern organized world It is essential reading for younger scholars and a radical reminder for those steeped in the tradition of a critical theory of society With a brilliance of conception combined with an insistence on the material conditions of thought and action this book speaks both to the particular contents engaged and to the fundamental grounds of any critique of organized modernity, The great theorist of radical liberation analyzes the relationship between authority and freedom br br This is the first paperback edition of what is now recognized as Marcuse s most important collection of writings on philosophy He analyzes and attacks some of the main intellectual currents of European thoughts from the Reformation to the Cold War In a survey that includes Luther Calvin Kant Burke Hegel and Bergson he shows how certain concepts of authority and liberty are constant elements in their very different systems The book also contains Marcuse s famous response to Karl Popper s em Poverty of Historicism em and his critique of Sartre
