Abstract:

This study takes up Thoreau's work as the early and prophetic diagnosis of the modern crisis of relationships between the individual and the society. Thus Adorno's formulation of a melancholy of science finds its predecessor in Thoreau's famous dictum from the early pages of Walden that we live our lives in quiet desperation. The author reads Thoreau's Journal as an attempt to refute tendencies towards the narrowing of life to being understood merely in techno-economic categories which threatens the quality of the development of both the individual and the community.
