Product Description

From the Back Cover

This volume makes Adorno′s lectures on the problems of moral philosophy available for the first time to English–speaking readers. It is one of several volumes of Adorno′s unpublished writings which are currently being published in Germany, and which will be published in translation by Polity. The book is organized around an account of Kant′s moral theory, and introduces most of the central topics of Adorno′s far more difficult work Negative Dialectics . He examines concepts such as the primacy of practical reason, the relation between freedom and experience, and the desubstantialization of moral thought. These and other concepts are discussed in an accessible and entertaining style which is very different from the rest of Adorno′s published work. Problems of Moral Philosophy will be an important resource for scholars drawing on Adorno′s thought, and its nature as a lecture course makes it a very useful and accessible introduction for students to Adorno′s ideas about moral philosophy. It will be of great interest to those working in philosophy and in social and political thought.

First Sentence
You have come in such large numbers to a course of lectures whose subject cannot be expected to exert an immediate attraction for young people that I have the feeling that I owe you something of an explanation and even an apology, and that I should warn you against excessive expectations. Read the first page

as readable as it is honest and exciting 4 Feb 2006

Format: Paperback
If you have heard that Adorno is difficult reading, this work, along with Critical Models, will correct your understanding of his approach to scholarship. It is very lively and pellucid.
