GONZALO, Adriana  y  GARCIA CHEREP, Paula. Horkheimer’s Reading of Positivism. A Critical Analysis of Horkheimer’s Interpretation of Positivism in His Early Writings. Diánoia [online]. 2019, vol.64, n.83, pp.49-77.  Epub 13-Abr-2020. ISSN 0185-2450.  https://doi.org/10.22201/iifs.18704913e.2019.83.1717.

This paper reconstructs the characterization of “positivism” in Horkheimer’s works. We argue that in the use of this term, Horkheimer makes a misinterpretation, then he uses it in order to refer to both nineteenth century positivism and the positivism of the twentieth century; at the same time, he does not recognize the significant contrasts between the positions of the twentieth century positivists. We also show that many of the features Horkheimer sets out for twentieth century positivists find no correlation in texts belonging to this tradition, which makes Horkheimer’s concept of “positivism” an interpretative entity in opposition to Frankfurt School. From the foregoing, we carry out a critique of the interpretations made by the author.

Palabras llave : critical reading; Frankfurt School; metaphysics; scientific theory; logical empiricism.
