In the above video, Andrew Feenberg discusses his new book The Philosophy of Praxis: Marx, Lukács and the Frankfurt School. The talk was held at the Vancouver Institute for Social Research on 27 October, 2014. Within Feenberg covers a range of issues, from Lukács’ theory of reification to technology, crisis capitalism, and contemporary social movements.
Originally published as Lukács, Marx and the Sources of Critical Theory (1981), The Philosophy of Praxis represents a substantial revision of Feenberg's earlier text. Chris Cutrone reviews the revised text here. The introduction to Feenberg's updated work is excerpted below.
The Philosophy of Praxis is available directly through the Verso website, with a 30% discount and postage and an ebook included free.
