Lukács in late capitalism

Richard Westerman

pp. 275-302

In concluding, Westerman reconsiders the relative importance of the likes of Husserl, Lask, Riegl, and Fiedler with more conventionally understood sources of his thought, such as Hegel. He also offers suggestions as to how Lukács's theory might be applied to understanding contemporary society, relating his argument to that of Fredric Jameson. Finally, he suggests that Lukács's aestheticized interpretation of social forms offers a different way to think about rationality from the abstract, a priori version of Jürgen Habermasm offering new possibilities for Critical Social Theory.
