This ebook, first released in 1983, with a moment version in 1992, investigates the emergence of the sociology of information in Germany within the serious interval from 1918 to 1933. those years witnessed the advance of detailed paradigms concentrated at the works of Max Scheler, Georg Lukács and Karl Mannheim. every one theorist sought to confront the base-superstructure versions of the connection among wisdom and society, which originated in Orthodox Marxism. David Frisbsy illustrates how those and different topics within the sociology of data have been contested via a close account of the critical sociological debates in Weimar Germany.

This reissue of The Alienated Mind can be of specific curiosity to scholars and lecturers interested in the advance of a big culture within the sociology of information and tradition, social idea and German history.
