An Austrian Marxist considers the political world view of Herbert Marcuse in an article originally titled, Prospects for ‘Modern Industrial Society’ — the Political World Scene According to Herbert Marcuse which first appeared in Weg und Ziel (No. 10, 1967), the theoretical journal of the Austrian Communist Party.
The writings of Marcuse are not so well known in this country, but his influence on young left, particularly student, circles is growling. Since this assessment was written Marcuse has further clarified his views and qualified some of the pessimism evident in his major works. This translation is by Jack Cohen.
