Cultural Marxism : A Survey

By Jérôme Jamin

Abstract

This paper examines Cultural Marxism as a regular theory in social sciences with its own history, and as a global conspiracy theory. It tries to locate and identify the exact moment the theory changed itself from a regular and well‐known knowledge in the field of cultural studies towards a key element used in multiple books and articles to explain the so‐called destruction of Western traditions and values. This paper also scrutinizes various usages of this conspiracy theory in politics, which is found more commonly within radical groups' speeches, rather than in mainstream conservative rhetoric's.Peer reviewe
