At this public seminar, “Thinking Revolution with and against Critical Theory,” we will explore the writings and activism of Hans-Jürgen Krahl and other members of the SDS (Sozialistische Deutsche Studentenbund) movement during the 1967-69 West German student uprisings, the relationship between Critical Theory and revolutionary movements, and the Krahl-Adorno relation, in an effort to further our understanding of the relationship between critique and praxis.
This is a Joint Session with the Institute for Social Research at Goethe-Universität Frankfurt.
Please join Martin Saar and Bernard E. Harcourt as they discuss Hans-Jürgen Krahl, Constitution and Class Struggle (excerpts on Adorno, a political autobiography, and on the Russian invasion of Czechoslovakia) and the dossier published by Elia Zaru, Fabio Angelelli and Dave Mesing in Viewpoint Magazine.
