Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article analyzes the works of selected key figures associated with the Frankfurt School showing how they employed psychological insights in their search for Utopia. According to Colin Hay, although structure and agency can be separated analytically, in practice they are interwoven. Several members of the Frankfurt School are united by certain theoretical and methodological issues. For instance, they were involved in highlighting the role of complex interaction between structure and agency to effect social change.
