Summary "This volume examines the ways in which the authors of the early Frankfurt School criticised, adopted and modified traditional forms of religious thought and practice. Focusing on the works of Theodor W. Adorno, Walter Benjamin, Erich Fromm, Max Horkheimer, Otto Kirchheimer and Franz Neumann, it analyses the relevance of religious traditions and the Enlightenment critique of religion for modern conceptions of emancipatory thought, art, law, and politics."--BOOK JACKET
