If we ever want to put a final date on the Enlightenment in the West, we could probably use this volume to argue that these men (all brilliant, all dedicated to socialism) were among its last exemplars. After them, only the white noise and chaos of a world where reason is definitively not in charge. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 184467570X, Paperback)

An intense and lively debate on literature and art between thinkers who became some of the great figures of twentieth-century philosophy and literature.

No other country and no other period has produced a tradition of major aesthetic debate to compare with that which unfolded in German culture from the 1930s to the 1950s. In Aesthetics and Politics the key texts of the great Marxist controversies over literature and art during these years are assembled in a single volume. They do not form a disparate collection but a continuous, interlinked debate between thinkers who have become giants of twentieth-century intellectual history.
