Long Description
Welche Bedeutung hatte linke Totalitarismuskritik in den deutschsprachigen Diskursen des 20. Jahrhunderts und wie entwickelte sie sich? Die Beitrage dieses Bandes untersuchen die verschiedenen Entwicklungsstufen dieser Diskurse und spannen dabei den Bogen von den fruhen Analysen und Kritiken in der Weimarer Republik uber die Konzeptualisierungen im Exil bis zur Theorie und Praxis im Kalten Krieg. Es wird deutlich, dass Totalitarismuskritik nicht nur eine Domane von Liberalen und Konservativen war und sich auch keineswegs erst im Zuge des Kalten Krieges herauskristallisierte. Die Verwurzelung im Marxismus musste solchen - Bolschewismus, Faschismus und Nationalsozialismus einbeziehenden - Analysen nicht im Wege stehen, wie gerade der Fall des fruhen sozialistischen Diktaturkritikers und demokratischen Marxisten Karl Kautsky anschaulich zeigt.
Long Description
What significance did totalitarian criticism of the political left have on German discourse of the 20th century and its continuing evolution? The contributions in this volume examine the different developmental stages of discourse while connecting early analysis and critiques from within the Weimar Republic to the conceptualizations from exile and theories and practices of the Cold War. It becomes clear that totalitarian critique was not only a bastion of the liberal and conservative, and that it by no means only emerged during the Cold War. As shown by the example of democratic Marxist and critic of dictatorships Karl Krautsky, the roots of Marxism should not stand in the way of such analysis (which included Bolshevism, Fascism, and Nazism). German text.
