Counter-Revolution and Revolt

Counterrevolution and Revolt is a book by the philosopher Herbert Marcuse. Marcuse writes that the western world has reached a new stage of development, in which “the defense of the capitalist system requires the organization of xnd at home and abroad.

He discusses the problems of the New Leftas well as other topics such as the political role of ecology. Citing author Murray Bookchin ‘s Post-Scarcity AnarchismMarcuse argues that ecology must be taken “to the point where it is no longer containable within the capitalist framework” by “extending the drive within the capitalist framework.


Marcuse also offers a discussion of art, including literature and music, in relation to revolution. He cites Arthur Schopenhauer ‘s observation, in The World as Will and Representationthat music “gives the innermost kernel preceding all form, or the heart of things”. Counterrevolution and Revolt was first published by Beacon Press in Moldenhauer suggested that Marcuse found the gay liberation movement insignificant, and criticized Marcuse for ignoring it even though “many gay activists” had been influenced by his earlier book Eros and Civilization He suggested that Marcuse’s comments about art reveal his indebtedness to Romanticism.

Brian Easlea, writing in Science and Sexual Oppressiondescribed Marcuse’s view that “Marx’s notion of a human appropriation of nature is not altogether free from the hubris of domination” as courageous. He wrote that Marcuse “explicitly adds to his decades of social analysis a dimension that had always been implicit: The philosopher Charles Crittenden, writing in The Oxford Companion to Philosophyedited by the philosopher Ted Honderichconsidered Marcuse’s advocacy of “working for change within the system” to be a retreat from Marcuse’s advocacy, in previous works such as An Essay on Liberationof revolutionary violence and confrontation as ways of achieving social transformation.
