Chapter Summary

This index section presents a list of terms and concepts 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. Max Horkheimer began the formal and systematic development of the critical theory in the Institute for Social Research at the Johann Wolfgang von Goethe Universität in Frankfurt a.M. from 1930 to 1933: the year in which Adolf Hitler came into power and drove the critical theorists, whom the fascists called "negativists", out of their Institute, which the fascists named "Cafe Marx" and which they confiscated, into Swiss, French, British and American exile which lasted from 1933 to the end of World War II.

Keywords: Adolf Hitler; critical theory of society; Dubrovnik group; Max Horkheimer
