Initiated by Lucien Goldmann (whose posthumous work Lukacs and Heidegger he published in 1973) to the work of the young Lukacs, Youssef Ishaghpour was formed by reading L’Âme et les Formes, La Théorie du roman, Philosophie de Art and History and Class Consciousness and by the works of Walter Benjamin and Theodor Adorno.

As part of this tradition, the writings of Youssef Ishaghpour are marked by a constellation of philosophical, historical, political and aesthetic thought.
