Max Horkheimer is born in Stuttgart, Germany. Max Horkheimer will become an important philosopher who helps create the Frankfurt School with Theodore Adorno and Herbert Marcuse.

Although much of his work will be based upon the idea of bringing more philosophy into the field of social science in the effort to improve the conditions of people living in society, Horkheimer will grow pessimistic about the possibility that any real progress in human social relations might actually be achieved.
