Most widely held works by Theodor W Adorno
Aesthetic theory by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
180 editions published between 1970 and 2013 in 9 languages and held by 3,069 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."

The culture industry : selected essays on mass culture by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
53 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in English and Spanish and held by 979 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
Critical models : interventions and catchwords by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
12 editions published between 1998 and 2010 in English and held by 938 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."

In search of Wagner by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
23 editions published between 1981 and 2009 in English and German and held by 699 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]
Problems of moral philosophy by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
15 editions published between 1996 and 2001 in English and German and held by 694 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
Quasi una fantasia : essays on modern music by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
18 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 654 libraries worldwide
This collection covers a wide range of topics, from a moving study of Bizetʹs Carmen to an entertainingly caustic exploration of the hierarchies of the auditorium. Especially significant is Adornoʹs "dialectical portrait" of Stravinsky, in which Adorno both reconsiders and refines his damning indictment of the composer in Philosophy on Modern Music. Throughout, Adorno is sustained by the conviction that music is supremely human because it is capable of communicating inhumanity while resisting it. His belief in the benevolent and transformative power of music reverberates throughout these writings. -- Publisher description
Mahler : a musical physiognomy by Theodor W Adorno( Book )
14 editions published between 1991 and 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 636 libraries worldwide
Theodor W. Adorno's classic study of Gustav Mahler's music defies traditional thematic analysis, which, according to Adorno, "misses the music's substance in its preoccupation with procedure." He reaches beyond the boundaries of conventional analysis for an understanding of the music through the composer's character, his historical, philosophical, and social background, and his moment in musical history. First published in German in 1960, this ground-breaking work quickly established itself as a bold new form of musical interpretation, expanding the framework in which the composer's character and, through this, his creations are more fully understood. Adorno illuminates his argument through evocative metaphors, vivid images, and unusual comparisons. The result is a densely layered, anti-systematic interpretation that reveals as much about Adorno as it does about his subject. One of the most original and highly regarded of modern musical commentators, and among the first to call himself a sociologist of music, Adorno was a philosopher, cultural critic, and composer. His unique critical method illuminated music by relating it to history and social milieu. He held that music was a nonconceptual language that represented yet transcended the social world; in music and art, aesthetic value and social relevance were necessarily united. The essential themes of his Marxism - reification, fetishism, the emancipatory role of art, and the dialectical relationship of affirmation and negation - were alive in even the most formal works of art. In Mahler's A Musical Physiognomy, Adorno views the composer's works as a continuous and unified development from his childhood response to the marches and folk tunes of the Bohemian village where he was born. But despite its traditional roots, Mahler's music intentionally breaks the balance of established musical language
