Lucien Goldmann: Cultural Creation in Modern Society (1971/1976)

2 May 2014, dusan

These six essays offer an excellent overview of Goldmann’s philosophy and sociology. They include not only some of his last writings on mass media and mass culture, new forms of literary creativity, and avant-garde theatre and cinema, but also some of his last thoughts on the problems of social change and political organization in advanced capitalist society. (from the Introduction)

Also included are commentaries on Goldmann’s work by Jean Piaget and Herbert Marcuse.
