The 3th International Conference on Marxist Critical Theory in Eastern Europe (ICMCTEE2022) will be held during November 18-21, 2022 in Chengdu, China. It will be in memory of György Márkus (1934-2016). Márkus was a member of Budapest School and put forward a series of central conceptions about culture, arts, modernity, anthropology and philosophy.
by John Grumley
George Márkus’s Four Forms of Critical Theory was first published in Thesis Eleven no. 1 in 1980. Reading it again meant revisiting a paper that I had first read forty years ago with fresh eyes. I always thought George was a special person and a great philosopher. He supervised my PhD and became my senior colleague after I was appointed to the Department of Philosophy at the University of Sydney. We became close friends after his retirement.
