Abstract [en]

In some key aspects, Marxist approaches to ‘false consciousness’ share a common ground with Rousseau’s ideal of a ‘negative education’ – both want to rid man of illusions originating in reified abstractions and speculations. In the following article, this common ground serves as a platform for discussing ‘false consciousness’ as a viable concept for a 21st century ideology critique, arguing for the need to ground such critique in subjective, life world experience, while avoiding the outer regions of materialism as well as idealism.
