  • Introduction: Transatlantic Theory Transfer: Missed Encounters'
    • Authors: Huyssen, A; Rabinbach, A.
      Pages: 1 - 3
      PubDate: 2017-10-25T13:26:09-07:00

  • What Was Theory' Toward a Generic History
    • Authors: Felsch P.
      Pages: 5 - 20
      Abstract: The intellectual content of such paradigms as Critical Theory, neo-Marxism, and poststructuralism has been abundantly traced. What remains to be studied, however, is the tremendous impact these schools of thought had on both the academic field and Western countercultures during the Cold War. This article I proposes to conceive of theory as a genre, that is, as an institution controlling the production, dissemination, and reception of texts. Drawing on the archives of the leading West German theory publishers Suhrkamp and Merve, the article follows the policies and strategies that led to the emergence of the countercanon of theory between the 1960s and the 1980s.

  • Narratives of Theory Transfer
    • Authors: Kinder A.
      Pages: 21 - 37
      Abstract: Focusing on the methodological challenges and the empirical dimension of transatlantic theory transfer, this article provides an overview of the concepts and ideas of theory transfer. By examining the deployment of the term and by reconstructing the respective concepts of theory, it considers the specific traditions in Germany and the United States. Providing statistical data, the article sheds light on success stories of transatlantic theory transfer from Germany to the United States and thus reassesses the concepts outlined in the first part.

  • (Mis)reading the Market' The Publishing Business and Theory Transfer
    • Authors: Kroll J. P.
      Pages: 39 - 60
      Abstract: This article explores the difficulties involved in theory transfer in the humanities from Germany to the English-speaking countries as they appear from the perspective of the publishing industry. Drawing on interviews with publishing professionals in Germany, the United States, and the United Kingdom, it considers the relationship between academic, commercial, and broader cultural trends. Structural differences in academe and the publishing industry on both sides of the Atlantic are shown to lead to conflicting expectations, while an unequal language barrier seems to work against German scholars and publishers. Thus programs on the part of political and industry bodies in Germany to support the translation and publication of German scholarship have proved vital. Yet beyond such institutional considerations, fostering a broader understanding of an interest in contemporary German culture, as a context in which theory might be understood, remains a challenge.

  • Gershom Scholem and America
    • Authors: Dweck Y.
      Pages: 61 - 82
      Abstract: This article traces the connections between Gershom Scholem and the United States. It opens with a narrative history of Scholem's visits to the United States before and after World War II and then discusses the reception of his postwar writings in the United States. Finally, it turns to his reflections on American writers and scholars in the final third of his career.

  • The Anonymity of Siegfried Kracauer
    • Authors: von Moltke J.
      Pages: 83 - 103
      Abstract: This article investigates the role of names, naming, and anonymity in the career and reception history of Siegfried Kracauer. A signature motif of his life and writings, the notion of anonymity is ambivalent, signaling both invisibility and success. The article traces this motif from its treatment in Kracauer's novel Ginster to the role the author ascribes to it in his correspondence with Theodor W. Adorno, to the posthumous fate of his works on both sides of the Atlantic. A comparative reception history shows the different valences of Kracauer's name in German and Anglo-American scholarship, particularly in the history of film studies. The article situates the trope of anonymity at the heart of Kracauer's oeuvre, where it helps define a nonsovereign subject in response to modernity.

  • Verfehlungen: Hans Blumenberg and the United States
    • Authors: Fleming P.
      Pages: 105 - 121
      Abstract: This article explores the fate of Hans Blumenberg's work to date in the English-speaking world and asks whether this "missed encounter" is simply contingent—that is, might have been otherwise—or if there is something about his thought, method, and materials that makes his transfer from a German to an American or Anglophone context particularly difficult. Looking at Paradigms for a Metaphorology and The Legitimacy of the Modern Age, the article examines the timing and framing of translation, as well as the unique difficulties that Blumenberg's work poses for the modern theory reader.

  • Against Rigor: Hans Blumenberg on Freud and Arendt
    • Authors: Jay M.
      Pages: 123 - 144
      Abstract: In the various texts posthumously published in translation in 2017 as The Rigorism of Truth, Hans Blumenberg audaciously compared Sigmund Freud's Moses and Monotheism and Hannah Arendt's Eichmann in Jerusalem as efforts to debunk founding myths of Jewish identity. He accused both thinkers of robbing the Jews of the ideological ammunition needed to confront anti-Semitism and defend the creation of the state of Israel. Both, he claimed, were moral rigorists who fetishized truth telling despite its practical consequences. Although this charge may well be dubious, especially in the case of Arendt, who understood the risks of veracity in the political realm, Blumenberg himself pursued uncomfortable truths wherever they led. By providing a reflective defense of the function of myth (along with metaphor) rather than its alleged meaning, he demonstrated his own unwillingness to abandon logos for mythos.

  • "All Our Theories Are Going to Be Carried Away by History": Alexander
           Mitscherlich and American Psychoanalysis
    • Authors: Herzog D.
      Pages: 145 - 165
      Abstract: Alexander Mitscherlich succeeded in his life project of returning psychoanalysis to post-Nazi central Europe—and securing for it far greater cultural prestige than it ever had in Sigmund Freud's own day—by advancing an idiosyncratic version of psychoanalysis as a secular moral-political language. Mitscherlich was also an effective public intellectual, serving as "the conscience of the nation," a "gentle repentance-preacher." Precisely what worked so well in the West German context was, however, anathema in America. This article explores the reasons for the depoliticized version of psychoanalysis ascendant in the postwar United States; the counterintuitive combination of factors shaping Mitscherlich's distinctive theorizing; and the many ironies in his delayed-reaction American reception in the 1990s and early 2000s, including in the unlikely realms of the turn-of-the-millennium "men's rights movement" (in its complex relation to second-wave feminism) and in post–Cold War international diplomacy, especially in sites of interethnic conflict.

  • Koselleck in America
    • Authors: Hoffmann; S.-L.
      Pages: 167 - 187
      Abstract: The recent upsurge of interest in Reinhart Koselleck's work across disciplines makes it even more conspicuous that his historical epistemology was rarely evoked—for example, in the excruciating debates about the linguistic turn in the 1980s and 1990s. Although there were repeated transatlantic encounters with Koselleck's work and briefly even with him as a teacher (in Chicago and New York around 1990), other German theoretical impulses were much more influential not only for Anglophone historians. Up until very recently, Koselleck was perceived either as a conservative historian and anti-utopian ideologue à la François Furet or, more narrowly, as a Begriffshistoriker, that is, historian of concepts à la John Pocock and Quentin Skinner, or as a metahistorian à la Hayden White. Of course, Koselleck repeatedly insisted that all these interests belong together. Yet only the essays published in three volumes in the years immediately before and after his death in 2006 make apparent how these different interests are laced together in his theory of possible histories, his Historik.

  • Niklas Luhmann
    • Authors: Rasch W.
      Pages: 189 - 203
      Abstract: Niklas Luhmann expressed puzzlement that his work was not well or extensively received in the Anglophone world, especially because he saw himself working within an American tradition characterized by cybernetics and scientific complexity theory. Yet the late twentieth-century intellectual ground was not fertile for his brand of social theory. By and large, nonquantitative social theory was no longer welcome in sociology departments. By opposing the ideology critique of the Frankfurt School tradition, Luhmann branded himself "conservative." And, unlike the kinds of theory prevalent in the humanities (e.g., deconstruction), Luhmann never advanced his ideas with close readings of classical texts. Nevertheless, underneath the dissonance of the theoretical language that he used, the resonance with "postmodern" trends was profound, and a small but persistent cohort of scholars continues to engage in the literal and figurative translation of his work in the United States and the Commonwealth.

  • The Kittler Effect
    • Authors: Winthrop-Young G.
      Pages: 205 - 224
      Abstract: This article traces the North American reception of "German media theory," especially the work of Friedrich Kittler (1943–2011). The construction of Kittler's work abroad is marked by truncations and targeted appropriations related as much to the breaks and discontinuities in his own writings as to particular dynamics in North American academe and beyond. It passes through several stages, extends into the domain of social media, and influences the subsequent—and ongoing—engagement with the German variants of media archaeology and the cultural techniques approach, both of which are indebted to Kittler.

  • "Half a Heart and Double Zeal": Critical Theory's Afterlife in the United
    • Authors: Zwarg R.
      Pages: 225 - 240
      Abstract: Critical theory has had an extraordinarily productive reception in the United States, most notably in journals like Telos and New German Critique. The article, based on a larger study, sketches the American reception of the Frankfurt School as (1) an attempt to come to grips with the political failure of the New Left and the student movement and (2) an unconscious encounter with the American particularity vis-à-vis Europe. As such, the article advances an understanding of what it means to speak of critical theory's "temporal core." The notion of "afterlife," the article argues, serves as a meaningful concept with which to study the historical transmission of the writings of first-generation critical theory.
