The negative connotation remained in formulations like ‘bourgeois ideologies’ or ‘ideological’ as opposed to ‘material’ interests. However, at the same time more positive understandings emerged. Eduard Bernstein, for instance, made efforts to demonstrate the connection between theory and practice, ideas and politics. Marxism was opposed to what it maintained was not free from ideology. Yet the social and economic theory developed by Karl Marx was not science but itself an ideology. In contrast to other ideologies, it was built on a realistic historical outline.
There is no ideology in the sense of a false consciousness opposed to the really existing society (Adorno and Horkheimer 1962; Adorno 1953/54 and 1955; Lenk 1961). Jürgen Habermas developed this critical vein in his argument about the functional transformation of late-modern ideologies. Technique and science emerge and justify themselves through a critique of traditional legitimizations of power. The argument is that they are less ideological than earlier ideologies, but at the same time more overwhelming and irresistible and also more far-reaching, because they eliminate practical-political questions from the agenda and focus on emancipating forces (Habermas 1968: 72–89).
