"A volume of Adorno is equivalent to a whole shelf of books on literature."--Susan Sontag"The most peculiarly representative of Adorno's work."--Cambridge Review"The best thoughts of a noble and invigorating mind."--"The Observer" [UK]"A staggering variety of topics is covered, moving in each section from the most intimate personal experiences to the most general theoretical problems."--"Radical Philosophy""A primary intellectual document of this age."--"Sunday Times" [London]"A classic of twentieth-century thought ... whose translation is the best by far of any work of critical theory."--"Times Literary Supplement"
About the Author
Theodor Adorno was director of the Institute for Social Research at the University of Frankfurt from 1956 until his death in 1969. His works include "In Search of Wagner"; "Aesthetic Theory"; "Negative Dialectics"; and (with Max Horkheimer) "Dialectic of Enlightenment" and "Towards a New Manifesto."
Top Customer Reviews
Minima Moralia is also a nice companion volume to Adorno and Horkheimer's more widely read "Dialectic of Enlightenment". Adorno's thinking is more relaxed and concrete here, showing his talent for a telling story and a wry observation. You could, rather simplistically, read Minima Moralia as a catalogue of the sort of observations that led to the Dialectic's grand theses about Enlightnement and modern reason. For those like me who found the Dialectic infuriating, this work gives you some insight into what led to Adorno and Horkheimer's rather baffling claims.
