After the theoretical and historical sections on the public sphere, this chapter turns to two specific examples from the romantic era to illustrate the public sphere both in its expansive mode, and in a crisis brought on by political repression and the contradictions of social class: John Thelwall, the most important public lecturer of the democratic movement of the 1790s, and the Analytical Review (1788–99), perhaps the purest example of Enlightenment cosmopolitanism in the 1790s. The public sphere in Habermas’s account consists of literary and political spheres that mediate between private individuals and the state.
99 Schmitt, like Hardt and Negri, objects to international interventions justified by the discourse of human rights, but Habermas sees such interventions as hopeful cosmopolitan moves toward the juridification of human rights. 100 Hardt and Negri are not wholly within the Counter-Enlightenment, as they make use of the materialist and Spinozan currents of the Enlightenment. Although they leave much to the hypothetical spontaneity of the ‘multitude’, they do not reject reason itself. Carl Schmitt is not simply anti-liberal, as are Hardt and Negri, but also strongly opposed to the Enlightenment itself.
Lukács turns Marx’s ‘commodity fetishism’ idea into a narrative about estranged labour whereby workers become commodified things in a world they produce but perceive as alien (History and Class Consciousness (1920)). Adorno and Horkheimer withdraw entirely Lukács’s hope in a revolutionary proletariat, and radicalize the degradation of capitalist society by locating in rationality itself the deadening power of reification In controlling nature, reason deforms human nature, so that ineluctably every advance of enlightened emancipation from the terror of nature is also an intensification of reason’s power to dominate human nature.
