Page text is plagarised from[edit]

Nope. Look at the bottom of the page; it states clearly "Source: Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia © 2001-2006 Wikipedia contributors (Disclaimer)". is a Wikipedia mirror. Taragüí @ 10:19, 13 February 2006 (UTC)


"He would return to America between 1954 and 1959 to lecture at Chicago." I take it this is the University of Chicago? I was going to put a link but wasn't sure. Eric 10:00, 22 August 2005 (UTC)


Any insight into the alternative spellings, Horkheimer vs. Horckheimer? 10:39, 21 September 2005 (UTC)Jethro brice, 11.35 21.09.05 Glasgow

Horkheimer, to the best of my knowledge, never spelled his name otherwise. The "c" must be a folk Americanisation. Taragüí @ 10:19, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

critical theory?[edit]

How odd that the word 'Marxism' never appears in this article about a major Marxist theoretician! See Bobbitt, The Shield of Achilles, pp. 602-604.

Critical theory: the theory that dare not speak its name!

Cultural marxist?[edit]

As a member of the Frankfurt School, Horkheimer is clearly a Cultural Marxist. Although saying his work encompassed critical theory may make his position clear to academics, pointing out that he was a Cultural Marxist in the introduction would make things clearer for non-academic readers.
