Written throughout the moment global warfare and circulated privately, it seemed in a published version in Amsterdam in 1947. "What we had got down to do," the authors write within the Preface, "was not anything lower than to give an explanation for why humanity, rather than coming into a very human nation, is sinking right into a new type of barbarism."

Yet the paintings is going some distance past an insignificant critique of latest occasions. traditionally distant advancements, certainly, the start of Western background and of subjectivity itself out of the fight opposed to usual forces, as represented in myths, are hooked up in a large arch to the main threatening reviews of the current.

The publication is composed in 5 chapters, initially look unconnected, including a few shorter notes. some of the analyses difficulty such phenomena because the detachment of technological know-how from functional existence, formalized morality, the manipulative nature of leisure tradition, and a paranoid behavioral constitution, expressed in competitive anti-Semitism, that marks the boundaries of enlightenment. The authors understand a typical aspect in those phenomena, the tendency towards self-destruction of the guiding standards inherent in enlightenment proposal from the start. utilizing historic analyses to explain the current, they exhibit, opposed to the heritage of a prehistory of subjectivity, why the nationwide Socialist terror used to be now not an aberration of recent background yet was once rooted deeply within the basic features of Western civilization.

Adorno and Horkheimer see the self-destruction of Western cause as grounded in a historic and fateful dialectic among the domination of exterior nature and society.

Enlightenment and delusion, for this reason, should not irreconcilable opposites, yet dialectically mediated characteristics of either genuine and highbrow lifestyles. "Myth is already enlightenment, and enlightenment reverts to mythology." This paradox is the elemental thesis of the book.

This new translation, in line with the textual content within the entire variation of the works of Max Horkheimer, comprises textual editions, statement upon them, and a piece of writing dialogue of the placement of this paintings within the improvement of serious Theory.
