Herbert Marcuse

Author Code: GHMC

Born: Jul. 19, 1898 - Berlin, Germany

Died: Jul. 29, 1979 - Starnberg, Germany

Of Jewish descent, Marcuse was drafted into the German Army in 1916, but didn't see any action. He was educated at the University of Berlin and the University of Freiberg, where he received his PhD in 1922. He then worked in publishing for a few years before returning to Freiberg in 1928 to study and co-author with Martin Heidegger a work on Hegel, which was subsequently published in 1932. In 1933, Marcuse joined the Institute for Social Research in Frankfurt and that same year published Economical and Philosophical Manuscripts of 1844, his first major review of Karl Marx. The rise of Nazism in Germany forced the Institute to flee to Geneva and subsequently to America. Marcuse became a US citizen in 1940. That year he published his masterpiece, Reason and Revolution, a study of Marx and Hegel that would become an important tome to many young leftists. During the Second World War Marcuse worked for the Office of War Information and the Office of Strategic Services (OSS) and was employed by the Department of State following the war until 1951. He then began a long teaching career which saw him at Columbia, Harvard, Brandeis universities and the University of California into the 1960's. Marcuse became an idol of the New Left during the 1960's with his criticism of capitalism and he influenced many of the leading exponents of radicalism such as the Chicago Seven and Angela Davis. His other works include The Foundation of Historical Materialism (1932), A Study on Authority (1936), Eros and Civilization: A Philosophical Inquiry Into Freud (1955), Soviet Marxism: A Critical Analysis (1958), One-Dimensional Man (1964), An Essay on Liberation (1969), Counter-revolution and Revolt (1972) and The Aesthetic Dimension: Toward a Critique of Marxist Aesthetics (1978).
