György Lukács and the Sixties
Georg Lukács’ "life work" (also as a whole of "life" and "work") enjoys a high stage in 1968, but already in the sixties in general. At this high stage, the different moments unite in a whole to be difficultly dismantled analytically. A striking, aber not allowed solution for the explanation of this phenomenon would be the extreme generalization, if not just hyperbolization of the questioning. In this case, it should be said, that in Lukács’ fate the fate of a whole philosophy and of a whole political establishment is manifest as focus and symbol, so that also the dilemmas of this philosophy and of this political establishment lead far beyond the individual.
