Critical Theory Marx's work inspired the 'Frankfurt School' of critical theory, now best exemplified in the work of Jürgen Habermas.<ref>David Ingram, Habermas: Introduction and Analysis, New York: Cornell University Press, 2010.</ref> This, in turn, helped inspire the cultural studies form of social critique, which treats cultural products and their reception as evidence of wider social ills such as racism or gender bias. Social critique has been further extended in the work of Michel Foucault<ref>Michel Foucault, Was ist Kritik?, Berlin: Merve Verlag 1992. ISBN 3-88396-093-4</ref> and of Alasdair MacIntyre.<ref>Alasdair MacIntyre, After Virtue, Notre Dame: University of Notre Dama Press, 1981.</ref> In their different and radically contrasting ways, MacIntyre and Foucault go well beyond the original Kantian meaning of the term critique in contesting legitimatory accounts of social power.
