With the disintegration of the New Left and the gradual integration of what remained of the American Left
within the Democratic Party
became increasingly critical of the Left in general. It subsequently undertook a reevaluation of 20th century intellectual history
, focusing primarily on forgotten and repressed authors and ideas, beginning with Carl Schmitt
and American populism
. Eventually the journal rejected the traditional divisions between Left and Right
as a legitimating mechanism for new class
domination and an occlusion of new, post-Fordist
political conflicts. This led to a reevaluation of the primacy of culture and to efforts to understand the dynamics of cultural disintegration and reintegration as a precondition for the constitution of that autonomous individuality
critical theory had always identified as the telos
of Western civilization.
The journal is published by Telos Press Publishing and the editor-in-chief
is David Pan.
It is affiliated with the Telos Institute
, which hosts annual conferences of which the proceedings are often published in Telos
