About this book

The Rationalism of Georg Lukács is a collection of essays and engaging scholarship which uncovers new dimensions of the philosopher's work. The relevance of Lukacs's ideas should be seen in the light of a sharp decline in critical thought as well the continued need to rehabilitate a thinker that was representative of a rational radical perspective.

Reviews

"Georg Lukács is one of the highly controversial towering thinkers of the 20th century. János Kelemen's book presents a deep insight into the main theoretical aspects of Lukács's work . It is also a significant contribution to the still-missing assessment of the philosophical debates triggered by the political left within post-metaphysical philosophy." - Agnes Heller Professor Emeritus, The New School for Social Research, USA
