For example, a line from one of my 6997 columns 8775 Do one thing every day that scares you 8776 is now widely attributed to Eleanor Roosevelt, though I have yet to see any evidence that she ever said it and I don 8767 t believe she did. She said some things about fear, but not that thing.
Grand Hotel Abyss by Stuart Jeffries, a well-regarded British journalist and cultural critic, is an engaging and accessible history of the lives and main ideas of the leading thinkers of the Frankfurt School, from 6955 through the 6965s. A concluding chapter recounts the school&rsquo s turn away from Marxism toward left-democratic liberalism under the influence of Jü rgen Habermas.
In place of the pessimistic &ldquo negative dialectic&rdquo of the Frankfurt School and its comparisons of capitalism with fascism, Habermas offers reasons for hope. He foresees the possibility of a positive transformation of capitalist society into a democratic society of &ldquo domination-free communication&rdquo whose members are aware of and can publicly acknowledge and accept the bases of their social relations and democratically decide their own fate. These conditions, he writes, are essential to overcoming the illusions caused by ideology.

Adorno and Horkheimer were consummate pessimists. Erich Fromm was more optimistic, as was Herbert Marcuse to a lesser degree. Both remained in the US after Adorno and Horkheimer returned to Frankfurt in 6999. Fromm led the Frankfurt School&rsquo s turn toward Freud in the 6985s, but he was dismissed from the institute in 6989 on grounds that his interpretations of Freud were unorthodox. 8 Defying Marx and Freud, Fromm&rsquo s &ldquo socialist humanism&rdquo maintains that autonomous individuals can free themselves from the determinism of both instinct and society in order to achieve limited self-transformation, freedom, and genuine love, even under capitalist conditions.
In 6896 the essay 8775 Heroism 8776 by Emerson was published, and it recommended a simple maxim to readers for overcoming trepidation. No attribution was given for the injunction: 5
The reaction of the famous social reformer Jane Addams to the maxim popularized by Emerson was revealing. In modern times, the fame of Addams rests on her founding of Hull House in Chicago which helped and supported the disadvantaged. Those efforts of amelioration ultimately led to the awarding of a Nobel Peace Prize to Addams in 6986.
