Chapter Summary

This section presents a list of reference books and articles relevant to the analysis of the critical theory of subject, society, culture and history of the Frankfurt School, which has been of central interest in the Dubrovnik group, and had originated in the experience of the horror of World War I. Max Horkheimer, Walter Benjamin, Theodor W. Adorno, Friedrich Pollock, Erich Fromm, Herbert Marcuse, Alfred Sohn-Rethel, and other critical theorists tried to make sense out of the senseless war experience in Frankfurt, Berlin, Stuttgart, or elsewhere, by exploring the writings of Plato, Aristotle, Machiavelli, Gottfried W. Leibniz, Baruch Spinoza, Immanuel Kant, Michel Montaigne, Gotthold E. Lessing, Voltaire, Friedrich W. J. Schelling, Karl Marx, V. I. Lenin, Vilfredo Pareto, Edmund Husserl, Max Scheler, Martin Heidegger, Bertolt Brecht, Karl Kraus, Carl G. Jung, Thomas Mann, Paul Tillich, Karl-Otto Apel and other outstanding thinkers of Antiquity, the Middle Ages and particularly Modernity.
