Alfred Lorenzer, a major figure in post-World War II German intellectual debate, is little known in the Anglophone world. As well as supplying biographical details, this short introduction to the special issue on Lorenzer’s work sketches the nature of his debt to Frankfurt School critical theory, highlights his attempt to place psychoanalysis on a materialist footing, and provides an overview of the issue’s contents.
