Marcuse and Brown: Utopia Reviewed
Silver, Daniel J.
MetadataShow full item record
In the summer of 1971 I was introduced to an extraordinary book, Norman O. Brown's Love's Body. Soon, I began to contemplate a theory of politics with sex as the focus. Encouraged in my quest, another book came into my possession. Herbert Marcuse's Eros and Civilation Civilization. At that point, this paper was really begun. I chose -- with interest as my only criterion -- to compare the two men. It did not take long to discover that I was tardy in coming to know them, for Marcuse and Brown are the major social theorists among the alienated youth of the Western world. They have frequently been compared and, in fact, have criticized each other in a provoking gambit which Marcuse published.If you are not a current K College student, faculty, or staff member, email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access to this SIP.
