 Critical theory was originally designed in response to the experience of populism in the 1930s. No wonder, then, that many writers interpret the return of populism today as a failure of critical theory – giving rise to a debate about its shortcomings and to suggestions for reform. This paper shares the goal of this debate: to identify the tasks of critical theory in times of Brexit and Trump. But it departs from the current debate in two ways: by providing an empirical analysis that shows that critical theory – contra common assumptions – has been politically very successful; and by providing a thorough reconstruction of Horkheimer’s core assumptions underpinning critical theory and its relationship to political practice. This reveals that while critical theory was always intended to have a political impact, it could never guarantee the outcome. Indeed, in the process of shaping historical development, critical theory inevitably becomes part of a new reality that must be subjected to further critique. It is therefore reflection on its own success that allows critical theory to unlock an account of the new historical realities today and to regain its critical edge: not through the reform of its core assumptions but through their application to a new historical conjuncture.

Dieter Senghaas Lectures
Semester:
WiSe 2019/20

Today we are confronted with a structural crisis of capitalism - as both a world-economic and a world-ecological system - a crisis that for the first time in history actually links the future of all people living on the planet. Is it conceivable that under the conditions of collapsing ecosystems, progressive human development is possible, including the civilization of inevitable conflicts?

All interested citizens are invited to this event.

Birgit Mahnkopf is Professor of European Social Policy at the Berlin School of Economics and Law. She has become known to a wider audience through her book "Die Grenzen der Globalisierung" (together with Elmar Altvater).

With the Dieter Senghaas Lectures, the Institute for Intercultural and International Studies (InIIS) pays tribute to the life and work of one of the most internationally renowned and respected peace and conflict researchers, who has been teaching and researching at the University of Bremen since 1978 and was a co-founder of InIIS.

Just a few years ago, politainment was a big issue in election campaigns. But in times of Facebook and Twitter a structural change has long since taken place: Fake news instead of politainment has become the predominant trend in election campaigns.
