Dialectic of enlightenment by Max Horkheimer ( Book )
229 editions published between 1944 and 2010 in 15 languages and held by 1,546 libraries worldwide
[This book] is undoubtedly the most influential publication of the Frankfurt School of Critical Theory. Written during the Second World War and circulated privately, it appeared in a printed edition in Amsterdam in 1947.... The work goes far beyond a mere critique of contemporary events. Historically remote developments, indeed, the birth of Western history and of subjectivity itself out of the struggle against natural forces, as represented in myths, are connected in a wide arch to the most threatening experiences of the present. -http://www.booksinprint.com.
Negative dialectics by Theodor W Adorno ( Book )
147 editions published between 1966 and 2008 in 8 languages and held by 1,396 libraries worldwide
Ce texte est l'oeuvre maîtresse de Theodor W. Adorno et l'un des grands textes philosophiques contemporains. L'idée d'Adorno est comparable à celle de la bouteille jetée à la mer : transmettre une vérité au monde sans la lui livrer, sans s'y donner complètement, sans se laisser prendre par le processus historique de récupération et d'assimilation.
Aesthetic theory by Theodor W Adorno ( Book )
156 editions published between 1970 and 2010 in 16 languages and held by 1,362 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."
Philosophy of modern music by Theodor W Adorno ( Book )
121 editions published between 1949 and 2009 in 8 languages and held by 1,248 libraries worldwide
"In 1947 Theodor Adorno, one of the seminal European philosophers of the postwar years, announced his return after exile in the United States to a devastated Europe by writing Philosophy of New Music. Intensely polemical from its first publication, every aspect of this work was met with extreme reactions, from stark dismissal to outrage. Even Schoenberg reviled it." "Despite the controversy, Philosophy of New Music became highly regarded and widely read among musicians, scholars, and social philosophers. Marking a major turning point in his musicological philosophy, Adorno located a critique of musical reproduction as internal to composition itself, rather than as a matter of the reproduction of musical performance. Consisting of two distinct essays, "Schoenberg and Progress" and "Stravinsky and Reaction," this work poses the musical extremes in which Adorno perceived the struggle for the cultural future of Europe, between human emancipation and barbarism, between the compositional techniques and achievements of Schoenberg and Stravinsky." "In this completely new translation - presented along with an extensive introduction by distinguished translator Robert Hullot-Kentor - Philosophy of New Music emerges as a key to the whole of Adorno's illustrious and influential oeuvre."--Jacket.

The culture industry : selected essays on mass culture by Theodor W Adorno ( Book )
30 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in English and held by 757 libraries worldwide
"The creation of the Frankfurt School of critical theory in the 1920s saw the birth of some of the most exciting and challenging writings of the twentieth century. It is out of this background that the great critic Theodor Adorno emerged. His finest essays are collected here, offering the reader unparalled insights into Adorno's thoughts on culture. He argued that the culture industry commodified and standardised all art. In turn this suffocated individuality and destroyed critical thinking. At the time, Adorno was accused by his many detractors of everything from overreaction to deranged hysteria. In today's world, where even the least cynical of consumers is aware of the influence of the media, Adorno's work takes on a more immediate significance. The Culture Industry is an unrivalled indictment of the banality of mass culture."--BOOK JACKET.

Problems of moral philosophy by Theodor W Adorno ( Book )
23 editions published between 1996 and 2010 in English and German and held by 739 libraries worldwide
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 Stanford University Press. 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 primary 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. This volume will be an important resource for scholars drawing on Adorno's thought, and its nature as a lecture course makes it 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.--Back cover.
