    The sociology of Theodor Adorno

    Get PDF
    Theodor Adorno is a widely-studied figure, but most often with regard to his work on cultural theory, philosophy and aesthetics. The Sociology of Theodor Adorno provides the first thorough English-language account of Adorno's sociological thinking. Matthias Benzer reads Adorno's sociology through six major themes: the problem of conceptualising capitalist society; empirical research; theoretical analysis; social critique; the sociological text; and the question of the non-social. Benzer explains the methodological and theoretical ideas informing Adorno's reflections on sociology and illustrates Adorno's approach to examining social life, including astrology, sexual taboos and racial prejudice. Benzer clarifies Adorno's sociology in relation to his work in other disciplines and the inspiration his sociology took from social thinkers such as Marx, Weber, Durkheim, Kracauer and Benjamin. The book raises critical questions about the viability of Adorno's sociological mode of procedure and its potential contributions and challenges to current debates in social science

    To praxis through the return to dialectic (or About Th. W. Adorno’s “Leninism”)

    Full text link
    El objetivo del presente artículo es analizar el alcance que sobre el desarrollo filosófico de Theodor W. Adorno pudiera haber ejercido la figura de Lenin. ¿Cabe decir que Adorno fuera “leninista”? Toda vez que las referencias a Lenin son más bien escasas en el corpus bibliográfico de Adorno, resulta cuando menos llamativo que éste le propusiera a Max Horkheimer realizar un “manifiesto estrictamente leninista” en 1956. Para profundizar en este interrogante será esencial reflexionar sobre el devenir de la noción de “praxis” a comienzos del siglo XX, especialmente en su vínculo con el pensamiento dialéctico heredado de la filosofía hegelianaThe aim of this article is to analyse the scope that Lenin’s figure could have exerted on Theodor W. Adorno’s philosophical development. Could be said that Adorno was “Leninist”? Since references to Lenin are rather scarce in Adorno’s bibliographic corpus, it is at least striking that Adorno proposed to Max Horkheimer to make a “strictly Leninist Manifest” in 1956. To deepen this question, it will be essential to reflect on the evolution of the notion of “praxis” at the beginning of the 20th century, especially in its link with the dialectical thought inherited from Hegelian philosoph

    Minima Pedagogica: Education, Thinking and Experience in Adorno

    Get PDF
    This article attempts to think of thinking as the essence of critical education. While contemporary education tends to stress the conveying of knowledge and skills needed to succeed in present-day information society, the present article turns to the work of Theodor W. Adorno to develop alternative thinking about education, thinking, and the political significance of education for thinking. Adorno touched upon educational questions throughout his writings, with growing interest in the last ten years of his life. Education, he argues following Kant, must enable students to think for themselves and to break free of the authority of teachers, parents and other adults. Nevertheless, in his discussions of education Adorno says little about the nature of thinking, and the secondary literature on his educational theory addresses this question only cursorily. Important claims on the nature of thinking do appear elsewhere in Adorno's work. From his early writings up to Negative Dialectics, Adorno is preoccupied with thinking, sketching the outlines of critical-dialectical thought. Still, these reflections rarely touch upon educational questions, and the Adorno scholarship has yet to establish this link. Unlike studies which read Adorno's educational thought against the backdrop of the history of education and the German Bildung tradition, or in relation to art and aesthetics, the present article brings together Adorno's ideas on education and thinking in an attempt to contribute both to the Adorno scholarship and to the growing field of education for thinking

    Is Wrong Life All That Is Possible? Adorno and Aquinas on Ethics

    Get PDF
    Theodor Adorno\u27s ethical thought is encapsulated in his famous aphorism Wrong life cannot be lived rightly. This dissertation explicates this alarming declaration, revealing the metaphysical, epistemological, and anthropological analyses that place Adorno\u27s ethical thought into this intractable predicament. I argue that Adorno\u27s ethical thought, while of absolute importance and worthy of consideration, can be moved forward through an engagement with the ethical thought of Thomas Aquinas, toward the possibility of right life
