Aesthetic theory by Theodor W Adorno( Book )

132 editions published between 1947 and 2011 in 7 languages and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The culmination of a lifetime of aesthetic investigation, Aesthetic Theory is Adorno's major work, a defense of modernism that is paradoxical in its defense of illusion. In it, Adorno takes up the problem of art in a day when "it goes without saying that nothing concerning art goes without saying." In the course of his discussion, Adorno revisits such concepts as the sublime, the ugly, and the beautiful, demonstrating that concepts such as these are reservoirs of human experience. These experiences ultimately underlie aesthetics, for in Adorno's formulation "art is the sedimented history of human misery."

Kant's Critique of pure reason (1959) by Theodor W Adorno( Book )

16 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in English and held by 547 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Adorno attempts to make Kant's thought comprehensible to students by focusing on what he regards as problematic aspects of Kant's philosophy. Adorno examines his dualism and what he called the Kantian "block": the contradictions arising from Kant's resistance to the idealism that his successors, Fichte, Schelling, and Hegel, saw as the inevitable outcome of his ideas. But these lectures also provide an accessible introduction to the rationale for Adorno's own philosophy as expounded in Negative Dialectics and his other major writings. Adorno's view of Kant forms an integral part of his own philosophy, since he argues that the way out of the Kantian contradictions is to show the necessity of the dialectical thinking that Kant himself spurned. This in turn enables Adorno to criticize Anglo-Saxon scientistic or positivist thought, as well as the philosophy of existentialism

Night music : essays on music 1928-1962 by Theodor W Adorno( Book )

5 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although Theodor W. Adorno is best known for his association with the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory, he began his career as a composer and successful music critic. Night Music presents the first complete English translations of two collections of texts compiled by Adorno - Moments musicaux, containing essays written between 1928 and 1962, and Theory of New Music, a group of texts written between 1929 and 1955. In Moments musicaux, Adorno echoes Schubert s eponymous cycle, with its emphasis on aphorism, and offers lyrical reflections on music of the past and his own time. The essays include extended aesthetic analyses that demonstrate Adorno s aim to apply high philosophical standards to the study of music. Theory of New Music, as its title indicates, presents Adorno's thoughts and theories on the composition, reception, and analysis of the music that was being written around him. His extensive philosophical writing ultimately prevented him from pursuing the compositional career he had once envisaged, but his view of the modern music of the time is not simply that of a theorist, but clearly also that of a composer. Though his advocacy of the Second Viennese School, comprising composer Arnold Schoenberg and his pupils, is well known, many of his writings in this field have remained obscure. Collected in their entirety for the first time in English, the insightful texts in Night Music show the breadth of Adorno's musical understanding and reveal an overlooked side to this significant thinker."--Jacket

Can one live after Auschwitz? : a philosophical reader by Theodor W Adorno( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 361 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What took place in Auschwitz revokes what Adorno termed the "Western legacy of positivity", the innermost substance of traditional philosophy. The prime task of philosophy then remains to reflect on its own failure, its own complicity in such events. Yet in linking the question of philosophy to historical occurrence, Adorno seems not to have abandoned his paradoxical hope that philosophy might not be entirely closed to the idea of redemption. He prepares for an altogether different praxis, one no longer conceived in traditionally Marxist terms but rather to be gleaned from "metaphysical experience". This text anatomizes the range of Adorno's concerns, including sections such as "Art, Memory of Suffering", "Damaged Life", "Administered World, Reified Thought", "Toward a New Categorical Imperative", and "A Philosophy That Keeps Itself Alive"

History and freedom : lectures 1964-1965 by Theodor W Adorno( Book )

13 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 276 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Early in the 1960s Adorno gave four courses of lectures on the road leading to Negative Dialectics, his magnum opus of 1966. The second of these was concerned with the topics of history and freedom. In terms of content, these lectures represented an early version of the chapters in Negative Dialectics devoted to Kant and Hegel. In formal terms, these were improvised lectures that permit us to glimpse a philosophical work in progress."--Page 4 of cover
