For those who are able to read German:

I want to inform You about a book recently published in Bielefeld/Germany:
The author is Lars Meyer, a scholar of Helmut Reichelt. The book is titled

Absoluter Wert und allgemeiner Wille. Zur Selbstbegruendung dialektischer

look at: http://www.transcript-verlag.de/ts224/ts224.htm

Meyer carefully reconstructs the Marxian foundations in Adornos conception
of modern society as well as he points out Adornos still highly topical
criticism of sociology. Starting with Adornos critique of Weber and Dukheim,
Meyer carries on this perspective towards the recent approaches of Habermas
and Luhmann. The final section of the book is devoted to the question of a
critique of legal categories. By referring to newer publications in the
context of the German Neue-Marx-Lektuere Meyer is pushing Paschukanis one
big step further.

Best wishes,

Hanno Pahl
