Kritische Theorie und Kapitalismus: Die jüngere Kritische by Christian Ludwig

By Christian Ludwig

Der Kapitalismus in Deutschland befindet sich in einem Wandlungsprozess. Mit der Globalisierung und Öffnung neuer Wirtschaftsräume und Kapitalmärkte verbreiten sich auch unterschiedliche Krisentendenzen. Dies gilt besonders für die aktuelle politische und ökonomische state of affairs, die im Herbst 2008 als Finanzmarktkrise begann und inzwischen zu einer allgemeinen Wirtschaftskrise geworden ist. Christian Ludwig knüpft mit seiner theoretischen Neuorientierung an die Kritische Theorie an. Anhand einer Rekonstruktion ihrer wesentlichen Entwicklungsphasen überprüft der Autor die Bedeutung und die Plausibilität ihres Kapitalismusbegriffs. Durch die anschließende Gegenüberstellung von Kritischer Theorie und soziologischer Theorie zeigt er, welche Potenziale der Kritischen Theorie zur Weiterentwicklung der soziologischen Theorie genutzt werden können.
