Marcuse and his critics Thompson, Denise en_US 2021-11-25T14:48:05Z 2021-11-25T14:48:05Z 2002 en_US
dc.description.abstract This paper is a defence of Herbert Marcuse’s arguments in his paper ‘Repressive tolerance’, against critics who allege that his argument is authoritarian because he argues for an elitist vanguard and advocates violence and the closing down of debate. I argue that Marcuse does none of those things and, far from being authoritarian, his position is demonstrably anti-authoritarian. I suggest that the critics' arguments don't work because they are based on a hidden agenda—denial of the fact of social domination—an agenda whose exposure also makes sense of the liberalism to which the critics appeal to support their case. en_US
