German Lecturer Writing for The Guardian

web-image-2Dr Peter Thompson, Reader in German, is writing a series of eight articles for the Guardian on the Frankfurt School and Critical Theory.

In these articles Peter deals with the major thinkers within the Frankfurt School: Theodor Adorno, Max Horkheimer, Herbert Marcuse and Walter Benjamin as well as figures such as Ernst Bloch, Erich Fromm, Jürgen Habermas and Axel Honneth. These are introductory essays for a general audience rather than specialist pieces but they are attracting quite a lot of attention and will, in due course, be bundled together as an e-book published by the Guardian.
