Product description

Review

" Co-director of the Frankfurt School in pre-war Germany, Adorno (1903-1969) is one of those pivotal intellectual figures - along with Max Horkheimer and Herbert Marcuse - from whom much leftist cultural criticism is directly derived.... The titular description, 'prisms, ' suits Adorno - a major thinker of facets and angles and revolutions - and the collection itself is an ideal introduction to his work." - "Kirkus Reviews"

" Theodor Adorno was an inspiration to, and teacher of, some notably original thinkers of several generations and countries, but he is one of those academic writers whose work might be forgotten now that he is dead. 'Prisms, ' the fourth in The MIT Press's series of 'Studies in Contemporary German Social Thought, ' has 11 pieces on culture, writers, music and sociology, and a memoir of Walter Benjamin, Adorno's mentor.... This extraordinary book can make us smarter, more reflective and critical." - "The New York Times Book Review"
