Coöperism 8/13: The Frankfurt School Critique of State Capitalism and National Socialism

In the eighth seminar of Coöperism 13/13, Clara Maier, Jens Meierhenrich, William E. Scheuerman, and Bernard E. Harcourt discuss the Frankfurt School critique of State Capitalism and National Socialism. Any theory of coöperism must understand its principal alternatives: state capitalism, state-centric and state-controlled economies. It is for this reason that Coöperism 8/13 returns to the mid-twentieth century debates over state capitalism, and, more specifically, to the lively debate within a circle of expatriate German thinkers over the rise and establishment of National Socialism under Adolf Hitler. Among these German thinkers were the labor lawyer and political theorist Ernst Fraenkel (1898-1975) and several members of the Institute for Social Research in Frankfurt, including Otto Kirchheimer (1905-1965), Franz Neumann (1900-1954), and Friedrich Pollock (1894-1970), who moved to Columbia University during the war as part of the Frankfurt School in exile.
