Summary/Abstract: This text aims to reveal and to analyze certain moments of the historical, biographical, cultural, and intellectual context which influenced the critical theory of Max Horkheimer and Theodor W. Adorno. The method of contextualization has its theoretical groundings that correspond with the critical approaches of social analysis of the authors in focus: that the theoretical sphere is not separated from the practical and social sphere and to understand fully certain theory one should explore its context. The text is focused on the intellectual influences excluding Marx because that would require a longer and separate investigation.
