About This Item

USA: University of California Press, 1987. pp. x, 281. Index. Black and white photographic plates. Leo Lowenthal (1900-1993) was "a founding member of the celebrated Frankfurt Institute of Social Research. As the last survivor of the Institute's inner circle, he was frequently approached for interviews and recollections of his former colleagues. In 1980 a wide-ranging selection of his conversations with Helmut Dubiel about his former colleagues was published in German. Now, for the first time in English, the complete record of those interviews is made available, along with Lowenthal's personal remembrances of such famous former colleagues as Theodor Adorno and Walter Benjamin. Provides insights into Lowenthal's remarkable intellectual career. Exiled in the United States during the Nazi period, he, like his close friend Herbert Marcuse, chose to remain in America rather than return to rebuild the Institute in postwar Frankfurt. His work on the sociology of literature and mass culture won him international recognition. This important book provides a rare glimpse into the internal dynamics of one of this century's most influential schools of thought and bears witness as well to the remarkable intellectual vitality of Leo Loewnthal himself." - dust jacket (not included). Former library copy with usual markings and average wear. Binding intact. A sound reading copy.. First Edition. Hardcover. Fair. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
