Jürgen Habermas (born June 18. 1929) is a German sociologist and philosopher. He advocates pragmatism and Critical theory. Habermas describes himself as a "a methodical atheist" and he is an advocate of the Frankfurt School. Cultural Marxism is a branch of Marxist ideology formulated by the Frankfurt School, which had its origins the early part of the twentieth century.
Jürgen Habermas, was born in Düsseldorf. His childhood was influenced by hegemony of Nazism. During that period, he served in the Hitler Youth committee and had been sent to defend the western front during the final months of the war. Habermas was critique of Martin Heidegger's philosophy and studied philosophy in Bonn and Göttingen. From 1956 to 1959, Habermas worked as an assistant at the Institute for Social Research in Frankfurt, where he met Theodor W. Adorno and Max Horkheimer. In 1964, strongly supported by Adorno, Habermas became Horkheimer's successor at the department of philosophy and sociology of University of Frankfurt. As a teacher there, Habermas dealt with aspects of the Enlightenment.
Long March through institutions: Seminaries
One of the goals of Frankfurt School was to infiltrate theological seminaries with their Marxist-based ideology. Curerently, the Liberal Theology of that kind is, for example, tought at the Norwegian School of Theology (Det Teologiske Menighetsfakultet) in Oslo under the banner of Master's program on 'Religion, Society and Global Issues'. Bible is put aside and instead of learning the Biblical values, students are given tasks to study works of Neo-Marxists from Frankfurt School such as Jürgen Habermas and his ‘post-secular theory of religion in the public sphere’.
