Alasdair MaCintyre's book is a systematic critique and engagement with Herbert Marcuse's sociology and philosophy. This was written when MaCintyre was engaging with Marxism, presumably swept up in the New Left spirit in Britain, something MaCintyre's colleagues still grieve and mourn over, although MaCintyre swiftly moved towards an Aristotelian(ish) position

MacIntyre's book ultimately conducts a complex series of both interior and exterior critiques of the encyclopaedic and genealogical positions in an attempt to vindicate philosophical Thomism as the most persuasive form of moral inquiry currently on offer.

Herbert Marcuse was a philosopher was influence outside his field was far greater than his influence within the small circle of professional philosophers and – as far as I am concerned – more’s the pity. Not only do I not agree with his worldview but I disagree with how he viewed the world. Marcuse strikes me as one of those people for whom theory – his and his fellow Frankfurt School members’ updating of Marxist theory – trumps facts.
Marcuse tried to marry the ideas of Marx with those of Freud, perhaps in an effort to explain away the failure of the Western proletariat to do what Marxists expected of them. He concluded that under consumerist capitalism the worker had bought into the system, albeit as a “one dimensional man”. The revolution would have to be led by radical intellectuals and the marginalized. Such ideas made Marcuse the darling of the “New Left”.
This work is part of the Fontana series on “Modern masters” published in the 1970’s –while Marcuse was still alive. This is the 29th one I’ve read. One – Bryan Magee’s ‘Popper’ – had a profound influence on me. Most I found informative, some – such as the one on Chomsky’s linguistics – I found heavy going. Of those I’ve read this one is unique in that the author has such an unremittingly negative attitude to its subject. Now, as you may have gathered, I didn’t approach the book with a positive predisposition to Marcuse, quite the reverse as what I knew of Marcuse’s ideas I didn’t like. In particular I opposed his ideas concerning tolerance, that “"Liberating tolerance… would mean intolerance against movements from the Right, and tolerance of movements from the Left... it would extend to the stage of action as well as of discussion and propaganda, of deed as well as of word.” Whatever happened to the concept of, "I disapprove of what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it"?
While I approached the work with a negative view of Marcuse I also approached it with an open mind and, so negative was the author to Marcuse that, before writing this review, I sought out on YouTube Magee’s 45 minute interview with Marcuse before writing this review least I do Marcuse an injustice.
I also tried to read the selection of Marcuse’s own words in Wikiquotes but quit least I lose the will to live.
The author presupposes a level of knowledge that the general reader – myself very much included – may not have and concentrates primarily on pointing out the inconsistencies in Marcuse’s positions and on his habit of making assertions rather than supporting his arguments with evidence.
This book was published in 1970 and I suspect that were such a work commissioned today it would concentrate more on the effect of Marcuse’s though and less on the systematic critique of Marcuse’s theories. Because of this I’m giving it a three star rating rather than a four star one.
