Editorial Reviews

Review

Kellner's ambitious and useful book attempts not only to provide a conspectus of critical theory, but to carry forward what he takes to be its essential design―to ' do' critical theory as well as to analyze it.

(Berel Lang Philosophy and Literature)

From the Back Cover

From its beginnings in the 1930's, the critical theory of the so-called Frankfurt School has refused to situate itself within any arbitrary or conventional academic divisions. Traversing and undermining boundaries between competing disciplines, it stresses interconnections among philosophy, economics and politics, culture and society.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book for anyone to read. If you want to become more aware of how much of today's society works, and where its influence comes from, then this book is right for you. One might find some words to be pretty complicated, but by looking past it, you should still be able to grasp a decent amount of information. Of course, due to the depth of this book, it you will probably need to read it at least twice to fully understand it. Other than that, I really loved it.

In a few words, this book was extremely helpful in outlining some basic thoughts (with depth) of the Frankfurt School. It is clearly written and easy to follow. Kellner does a great job of engaging the reader, enticing one to continue on and on until the end. If you are interested in learning more about the Frankfurt School, critical theory etc., then check this book out - very helpful.

Format: Paperback
This book provided an excellent analysis of the Frankfurt School including the contributions of Horkheimer and Habermas. There were also three very interesting chapters that focused on the mass media and technology. For someone looking to develop a critical perspective of the media this book is a great start. Also, it was fairly easy to read.
