The Vortical Construct...

Got an hour of alienated labour available? The original feminist, in his own words.

  4. I'm beginning to wonder if Marcuse and Satre's only really claim to fame was having the good fortune to have been in Paris in the Spring of '68.

  5. ...when the press was going nuts trying to develop a narrative to explain the student uprising to their readers.

    No, not Marcuse and Sartre. You might say that of Althusser, Foucault et al. Anyway, i do not see any similarities between Sartre and Marcuse.

  7. Both were Marxists... Marcuse was in Paris for a conference.

  10. I don't find Marcuse boring. As much as I may disagree with his "project" to bring about societal change, I certainly agree that the man knows how to go about it (although I question that he will achieve his "stated" goal of reduced violence). And as far as manking being able to develop ever more effective weapons of mass destruction... once the nuclear threshold was crossed, there's no way meven a post-Marcusian society will ever experience a "forgetting" of the technology required to accomplish mass destruction. The genie's already escaped from that bottle.
