4 studies Herbert Marcuse, the most popular philosopher of the 1960s,
and examines the two contradictions Marcuse sees as being at the
heart of modernity.
*It turns out not to be the case that the more we rid ourselves
of myth and superstition the *less afraid we are in the face of
Instrumental rationality leads to irrational outcomes and dangers.
We learn how Marcuse's practice of imminent critique suggests ways
to eliminate these contradictions and allow humans to live a life
with more freedom and solidarity."
