Critical Theory

An evaluative approach to social science research, associated with Germany's neo-Marxist "Frankfurt School" (1923-69), that aims to criticize as well as analyze society -- opposing the political orthodoxy of modern communism, its goal is to promote human emancipatory forces and to expose ideas and systems that impede them.
