Exile and Social Thought synopsis
Involved in the political events surrounding World War I and the failed Hungarian revolutions of 1918-1919, a number of intellectuals fled from Hungary to Germany and Austria, where they founded the Weimar culture. Including George Lucax, whose history and class consciousness have re-formulated Marxism and challenged even those who reject his policies.
Bela Balazs, who pioneered the theory of cinema and collaborated with filmmakers J. W.
Babest, Lin Reinsthal, and Alexander Korda. Laszlo Mohuli Nagi, who transformed the Bauhaus during its peak in the mid-1920s.
And Karl Mannheim, whose idea and Utopia were the most work of non-communist social theory that was widely debated during the Weimar years. In this collective picture of intellectual history and the details of biography, Lee Kongon describes how Hungarianintellectuals, in a different way, enthusiastically defended the need for society in war-torn Europe and the Revolution.
Whether this person is a communist, avant-garde or Catholic thinker, every thinker is examined in the vast fabric of his work, amid his culture and intellect, and his experience as exile. Despite the ideological differences of these men, Congdon reveals how their personal destinies and social goals have often merged. As many assimilated Jews, he argues that their thinking in society was inextricably intertwined with the sensitivity of young people to anti-Semitism in Hungary and with the isolated restrictions on their lives in Germany and Austria. Originally published in 1991.
