Critical. Theory1. AXEL. HONNETH. It is now half a century since critical theory
emerged under the direction of a single man and as the work of a circle of
intellectuals; but it was not until the student movement turned back to the writings
of the Institute for Social Research (Institut fur Sozialforschung) that critical theory
was recognized as a unified theoretical project. Since then it has occupied the
intellectual imagination: historical research has retraced the history of that
intellectual circle ...

best be understood as today's manifestation of a long-standing democratic
impulse in the academic study of international affairs. The impact of this impulse
can account for scientifically progressive breakpoints within the discipline, the
moments of transformation that are part of almost every conventional account of
the field's history — for example, the transition from idealism to realism in the
period ...

Although some of the main aims of critical theory as it was originally formulated
are discussed in the chapters that follow, this is done in order to emphasize that

with so many sharp edges that it's hard to pick up. To limit its propensity to wound
, critical theorists first historicize it. For millennia, the best authorities attributed
differences among peoples to climate and temperament: those living nearest the
equator, such as Africans, were regarded as sanguine and intelligent, builders of
