Jacobin Show: Did the Frankfurt School Ruin the Left? w/ Jeremy Cohan & Ben Serby

October 08, 2021

Professors Jeremy Cohan and Benjamin Serby discuss the influence of Herbert Marcuse and the Frankfurt School on the New Left, how they continue to shape our politics today, and why the right became obsessed with "cultural Marxism."


The Jacobin Show offers socialist perspectives on class and capitalism in the twenty-first century, the failures of liberalism, and the prospects of rebuilding a left labor movement in the US. This is the podcast version of the show from October 5, 2021 with Jen Pan and Paul Prescod hosting.
