Philosophy of modern music by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
215 editions published between 1949 and 2016 in 7 languages and held by 2,602 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
Aesthetic theory by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
242 editions published between 1947 and 2015 in 6 languages and held by 2,577 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."

In search of Wagner by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
71 editions published between 1952 and 2009 in German and English and held by 1,051 libraries worldwide
Richard Wagner's works are among the most controversial in the history of European music--because of their powerful aesthetic qualities and, in wider political terms, because of their eventual assimilation into the official culture of the Third Reich. This concise synoptic account by the most brilliant exponent of Frankfurt School Marxism subtly interweaves these artistic and ideological qualities. It provides deft musicological analyses of Wagner's scores and of his compositional techniques, orchestration and staging methods, quoting copiously from the music dramas themselves. At the same time it offers incisive reflections on Wagner's social character and the ideological impulses of his artistic activity [Publisher description]

The culture industry : selected essays on mass culture by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
67 editions published between 1990 and 2015 in English and Spanish and held by 960 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."--Jacket
Quasi una fantasia : essays on modern music by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
53 editions published between 1963 and 2011 in 6 languages and held by 885 libraries worldwide
"Quasi una Fantasia contains Adorno's own selection from his essays and journalism over more than three decades. In its analytical profundity it can be compared to his Philosophy of Modern Music and to the monographs on Berg, Mahler and Wagner. But in the range of its themes and references (from Mozart to Boulez, the minuet to the jitterbug) and in the clarity of its arguments, Quasi una Fantasia stands alone among Adorno's writings on music."--BOOK JACKET. "At the book's core are illuminating studies of the founders of modern music: Mahler, Schoenberg and Berg, as well as sympathetic rediscoveries of Alexander Zemlinsky and Franz Schreker. Especially significant is Adorno's 'dialectical portrait' of Stravinsky, in which he both reconsiders and refines the damning indictment he gave in Philosophy of Modern Music. In 'Vers une musique informelle', an enormously influential essay, he plots a course for a music of the future 'which could take up the challenge of an unrevised, unrestricted freedom'. More unexpectedly, there are moving accounts of earlier works, such as Bizet's Carmen and Weber's Der Freischutz, along with an entertainingly caustic 'Natural History of the Theatre' which explores the rituals and hierarchies of the auditorium, from upper circle to foyer."--BOOK JACKET. "'The positive element of kitsch', Adorno remarks, 'lies in the fact that it sets free for a moment the glimmering realization that you have wasted your life.' Musical kitsch is the target of several of the shorter pieces: on Gounod's Ave Maria or Tchaikovsky's 'clumsy naivety'; on the 'Penny Serenade' or the transformation of Mozart into chocolate-box rococo. Yet even while Adorno demolishes 'commodity music' he is sustained by the conviction that music is supremely human because it retains the capacity to speak of inhumanity and to resist it. It is a conviction which reverberates throughout these writings. For Adorno, music and philosophy were inextricably linked: Quasi una Fantasia will enlarge our understanding of both."--BOOK JACKET
Der Positivismusstreit in der deutschen Soziologie by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
101 editions published between 1969 and 1993 in 3 languages and held by 690 libraries worldwide
Critical models : interventions and catchwords by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
17 editions published between 1998 and 2005 in English and held by 641 libraries worldwide
After years of exile during the Second World War, Theodor Adorno returned home to Germany. Having stated, "To write poetry after Auschwitz is barbaric," what would he now have to say about the remnants and transformations of the society from which he had barely escaped a few years before? The answer lies in Adorno's postwar work - trenchant essays, aphorisms, and radio addresses created in a wide-ranging attempt to reintroduce psychoanalysis, critical thinking, and philosophy to a culture that, in the wake of Nazism, had an "inability to mourn" and no sense of "memory."
Adorno : the stars down to earth and other essays on the irrational in culture by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
35 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in English and held by 627 libraries worldwide
The essays collected here offer an analysis of the irrational dimensions of modern culture which is both timely and disturbing in the 1990s. Adorno's ideas are relevant to the understanding of phenomena as apparently diverse as astrology and "New Age" cults, the power of neo-fascist propaganda and the re-emergence of anti-Semitism, and the psychological basis of popular culture. The longest essay, "The Stars Down To Earth" offers a content analysis of the astrology column in a 1950s Los Angeles newspaper. Adorno argues that the column promotes psychological dependency and social conformism in much the same way as fascist propaganda. He maintains that the same principles operate in the mainstream products of "the culture industry." The three shorter papers illuminate different aspects of Adorno's argument: the relation of occultism to orthodox modern thought, the pervasiveness of anti-Semitism, and the "psycho-technic" rhetoric of fascist propaganda. Stephen Crook's introduction critically reviews Adorno's argument and offers an assessment of its contemporary relevance. Taken together, these essays offer an astringent antidote to any facile optimism about the democratic and pluralist character of postmodern popular culture. Adorno identifies an irrationalist dynamic which implicates the most enlightened and emancipated elements of contemporary culture. His unsettling arguments demand the attention of anyone interested in popular culture, critical theory, racism, and authoritarian politics

Theodor Adorno : key concepts by Deborah Cook( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Adorno continues to have an impact on disciplines as diverse as philosophy, sociology, psychology, cultural studies, musicology and literary theory. An uncompromising critic, even as Adorno contests many of the premises of the philosophical tradition, he also reinvigorates that tradition in his concerted attempt to stem or to reverse potentially catastrophic tendencies in the West. This book serves as a guide through the intricate labyrinth of Adorno's work. Expert contributors make Adorno accessible to a new generation of readers without simplifying his thought. They provide readers with the key concepts needed to decipher Adorno's often daunting books and essays
